For those who have Lost their spouse ...
"I GRANT YOU PEACE "
The crystal light of heaven's glow,
as morning tends my eye,
Though time on earth we no longer spend,
nor dreams beneath the sky,
Your angelic eyes inscribed in me,
like daydreams present past,
Thru whispers of the silent winds,
these memories everlast,
I prayed the rain would never fall,
but saw your body weak,
Death tore the pages all away,
like a tormenting stinging thief,
No-one knows the tears I cry,
within my mirrored heart,
or the shoes that I must walk in,
when loneliness takes its part,
Death holds no sway in sacred bonds,
when love has been so true ,
This constant throbbing ache inside,
it's me still loving you,
Our heart to heart enrichment,
and soul to soul spent years,
are almost like a sad goodby,
as I dry away these tears,
Time with you was golden,
love a sacred dance,
in life I touched an angel,
I thank you for that chance,
So as I turn these pages,
as the seasons come and go,
I silently take solitude,
with dreams of love I know,
Those memories of permanence,
sweet tears my only scars,
I treasure deep and always,
beneath the twilight stars,
So in life if ever asked,
if anyone touched you true ,
look high into the heavens,
for the angel once with you !

|Valerie, it was an honor, a joy and a pleasure to collaborate with you. I lost a dear friend and crystal soul yesterday, named Deanna Love - a friend and co-worker. She was a priceless influence on my life, who left this earth August 25, 2008 - leaving two beautiful daughters (Kaitlyn and Rachel) and her mother, Joy. I dearly miss her. -- Jeff|

|I feel just this way about my deceased love Tom. I am still grieving, and this poem helped me see the light of day tonight and under the stars I will dream of him again and one day I will be with him. So many of the verses here hit me in my heart and made me realize what a grand time I had with him.|

|A lovely collaboration that stirs the heart and soul. It made me think of the widow of my buddy I lost a year ago. She was about half his age and when he died I heard remarks that she would find somone new before their bed got cold etc. She stopped in to visit us not too long ago and we talked, she has no intention now or ever of having anyone else...so I guess their is that kind of love still around.
