When my Husband died I started going round to the Salvation Army  Ladies Fellowship on a Tuesday afternoon.    It is only round the corner so I do not have far to go.  I have found writing things down helps cope  with my grief.  Before Christmas we were asked if we would like to write a poem about light.  I wrote this for my Husband, the light that lit up my life.

As darkness falls and I switch on the light my thoughts turn to you as they do every night.

I miss your smile, your tender touch and all the things we shared so much.

Without you the days are long. the  nights are too and how I long to be with you. 

There one thing that I feel sure is that one day you'll be waiting for me at Heaven's Door.   M x x x

One day at a time.
