Tears on My Pillow
As I listen to this old song on the radio,|
Called ‘Tears on My Pillow’—
My thoughts turn to you,
And I wonder if I will ever be able to let you go.
I still miss your warm embrace at sunrise
That filled me with so much love.
You would cover me with feather light kisses
As we listened to the cooing sounds of our lone white dove.
Your tender words of encouragement, ‘Smile, I love you.’
Come flooding back into my heart and mind,
And tears come to my eyes as I remember you, my soul mate,
Whose sweet love, I was lucky enough to find.
I would get goose bumps all over me
As I watched you share your love,
With the homeless and god’s forgotten children
Who lined the streets and sidewalks of our fair city…
Their lives seemingly insignificant as they gathered around its hub.
You were the one who taught me how to love and laugh.
I smile as I take in the daisies, buttercups, and butterflies
While walking along this lake,
And I speak through my tears as I stop at your grave-site to tell you,
“My precious, I planted these flowers here just for your sake.”
“Please know that I have missed you terribly,
And that I will never forget,
How you were my best friend, first and foremost,
From the very day that we both met.”
“You showed me the beauty in the skies
And how love really can move mountains…
How to take pleasure in playing together like children
By wading and splashing each other in the waters of a fountain.”
“It is also your loving and generous nature,
That has brought me here today,
For you told me that you wanted me to move on and be happy
So, after two lonely years, I have found a man to love that way.”
“You will always have a special place in my heart,
And I want you to know that if it weren’t for you,
I don’t think that I would have been able to be open
To loving someone new.”
“I would be so happy if you could meet him
For he has your tender and giving heart,
And like you, he makes me laugh a lot
Which is an awfully good place to start.”
“There’s just one more thing, my darling,
Before this day comes to an end,
I want to thank you—
From the bottom of my heart for loving me,
And for being my lover, my husband and my dearest and closest friend.
