Three days ago our elderly neighbor passed away at home. For the next two days people came and went wishing the widow prayers and best wishes. Yet tonight on the third day she in her home sits alone.



A lifetime together where both love and tears had been shared.

Now he is gone and she sits in semi darkness sad and alone.

I don’t have to imagine the silence or the empty feeling inside.

I remember this dark silence when my Leah passed leaving me in the darkness to reside.


So sad is this; a lifetime together, then nothing but the empty silence of what used to be a home.

The walls are filled with memories, he / she is there at every turn.

The moment escapes the day; eyes filled with tears slowly in the silence burn.


Gone are the kids…gone are the friends and family as well all around.

You remain alone seeing and touching a ghost not to be found.

My prayers go out to her, for I know this black feeling so very well.

You open the door to which once was home, but now is your own silent hell.


You talk to God; you talk to the smiling pictures which hang on the wall.

You still smell their smell even though they are no more even when in tears you call.

Having lived through this and seen it all; the hurt, the pain lies silent before all.


Can you feel the pain…the silence that a lifetime in sudden separation brings.

Feel for her this day as she sits alone in the solitary silence and prays.

 I look back on the death of my own spirit; I look back at my own pain.

I can only recall the words of Jesus when he so aptly says…”let the dead bury the dead.”

For it is by these lines that give proof to life and keep the living and the spirit of man sane.


Therefore God bless this lady, this very night.

As she after a lifetime together shall alone face an empty morning light.

The LORD comforts us whenever we suffer. That is why we are able to console others whenever they suffer - by providing the same consolation we have already received from God.

This deeply-moving and highly-sensitve piece is proof of that Scriptural wisdom. My precious Bubba, I suggest you print this out, and then deliver it to her personally with one of your great hugs..
the LORD will use you for her consolation.

GOD bless her - I will add her to my prayers. And GOD bless you for your ever-loving heart.

Love & Hugs, Sis

PS> I really, really like your new Profile Page and the picture!
I realize that August 24th was yours and Leah's Anniversary - and I believe this year would be the 26th? Don't worry, Bubba, Leah and your love for her will never be forgotten :)
