The heartache of losing your soul mate of a lifetime

 

                                                                                           

 

 

           I Sit Alone and Cry
                                  (Recitation by Richard Lee Orey)

                
                 (O, yesterday the moment came
                   I feared so many years
                   Our time as one has run its course
                   My heart now filled with tears)
                            
                            
                                                
                   We were barely in our teens
                   When your love came dancing in
                   With your warm and gentle smile
                    And your silly little grin

                   Your tender love changed everything
                   Bringing me your light
                    I watched you every moment of the day
                    And dreamed of you all night

                   

                But now my heart is broken
                Your last breath a simple sigh
                While life goes on around me
                And I sit alone and cry

                    There never was another like you 
                     In sharing a sensitive touch
                     And maybe I adored you
                     And loved you far too much

                     I wanted only to catch your tears
                     With an understanding heart
                      I never thought there’d come a time
                     When we might ever part

                    But now my heart is broken
                               Your last breath a simple sigh
                               While life goes on around me
                               And I sit alone and cry

                        But only tender souls may touch
                        In magic born of heart
                        And know God’s time will come for us
                        When we’ll never ever part

                         For God’s hand gave us harmony
                         And hope in Evermore
                         While your dying whisper promised me
                          I’ll wait at Heaven’s door

                                  But now my heart is broken
                                  Your last breath a simple sigh
                                  While life goes on around me
                                   And I sit alone and cry

                                   While life goes on around me
                                    And I sit alone and cry

A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR

                      “I Sit Alone and Cry” was written from the perspective of being 77 years old and married to the same woman for 58 years, 
                       the same woman that has been my friend and lover since we were each only 14 years old.  In time, we grew up together 
                       and shared having children, grandchildren and one great-grandchild.  

                       Few if any readers can possibly understand emotionally the extraordinary closeness and connection with another person 
                       that develops over such a long lifetime of sharing intimacies and the vicissitudes of life, even while many of you perhaps 
                       have parents whose lives somewhat mirror this experience.  Truly, I believe it is a human relationship that requires one to 
                       have “lived it” to appreciate the dramatic life-melding dynamics of such a relationship.

                       To set the record straight, we are still two living people.  But our daily life cannot avoid the fact that in the somewhat near 
                       future, one of us will surely know the pain of such earthly separation.  And let me confess that I had to record my recitation 
                       three times before I was able to finish the reading without openly crying.

                       Thank you for your wonderful posted Reviews and the private AD messages you have sent expressing your concern and 
                       loving support.  And if you, too, are inclined to write a Review here, I will honor and treasure your posting.   
                                                                               

                                                                                                                                                               --Richard--
