Farewell sweet love
My life companion
Miss me no more
For I shall be gone
To parts unknown
No more to call my own

We shared laughter and tears
For these many years
Let me go I beg of you
End this deprivation
Forget the cost
Of love now lost

For sure I will miss you
First loves are impossible to replace
Remember we once loved
All the earth around us
Oblivious to distraction
Now a mere retraction

Forget you? Surely not
After all, you bore our children
With astounding dignity and courage
No one can remove your memory
Or take away the sacrifice
Given to me by one so nice

Sad in thought but delivers a message of hope for healing. Very well penned Keith.

This seemed very sad to me. Well written and laced with a certain acceptance.
