You Should Be Here But You're Not

You should be here but you're not.
We were so looking forward to growing old together.
We would have been that elderly couple that made people smile.
Holding hands – being affectionate.
Simply charming!

You should be here but you're not.
We traveled the world together – far and wide.
So many exotic adventures – so many opportunities.
Yet, so much contentment and satisfaction from snuggling on the couch together.
We both appreciated life’s simple pleasures together.

You should be here but you're not.
It was time for us to be an exclusive couple again.
Soon to be empty nesters. Our time for finding new adventures as a couple.
The places that we hadn’t been to – which ones would be first?
Glad that you got to see our son graduate from High School.

You should be here but you're not.
The 27-1/2 years that we were married. The 37 years of friendship.
It was so easy. It was so natural. We were such a great fit!
So now my new life is before me. The kids & I miss you so much.
Who knows what’s in store? I do trust and hope that my "new life" will be good
