One Year Alone Without Him
By Emma L. Willey, May 22, 2010
My man left a year ago today,
He’s been so long away
I didn’t think I could dot it
But I’ve made it all the way.
My Ormie is gone, but not in spirit
He is with me all the way.
His body is gone but not the rest
He is with me every day.
I remember so many things
His smile and his gentle ways
I could never have had a better man
Or a more perfect husband in every way.
I remember him in so many ways
And wish every day he was here
He left a big hole in my life, you know,
And I have shed many a tear.
But I knew he would expect me
To go ahead with my life in style
He would be proud of me today, I’m sure
How I’ve lived on without him this while.
I have missed him every day he is gone
I will never forget my great man
The father of my kids, and my hero
This husband of mine, my man.
Some told me to fins someone new
But nobody can take his place,
I will always remember my l man
I will never forget his sweet face.
Ormie was my world and will always be,
No matter how old I might get,
He is with me forever, not really gone,
Ad I will have no regrets.
