    lost in thoughts that werent her own
    caused my wife to leave our home
    myself two kids and sixteen years
    ended that day immersed in tears

    a beautiful woman so proud and strong
    fought for her kids from the the day they were born
    she loved me too and our little home
    and now she has left us all alone

    it wasnt her fault its not what she would do
    her love was unquestionable for us thats true
    but the hole thats left is gaping and wide
    and my heart is heavy deep inside

    i hope she is out there watching over us
    helping to guide us from above
    but not to have her here with me
    is eating me up im sure you can see

    i had planned to be with her till the day i died
    many years from now and by her side
    but thats been taken out of my hands
    as we were planning to renew our wedding bands

    i dont know where i go from here
    but i know each day i shed a tear
    for my true love who has gone away
    and wont lie with me another day

    her engaging smile and soft spoken voice
    now gone from our home replaced by a void
    maybe someday we will meet again
    in another life or another plain

    so goodbye dear wife mother and friend
    i wish i could have helped you at the end
    to vivienne whom i loved through and through
    from paul ,stephanie and wee paul aidan too.

    Sorry such a delayed read for me, but I started to cry. I'm sorry for your loss hun, that poem is beautiful. :hug:
  9. What a powerful, cathartic, honest way you have of expressing your deep sorrow and loss. I know it seems like little can help or seems useful at such times, but letting it out, especially in such a heartwreching though beautiful way may help certain parts of you heal, inspite of the gaping scar. Though the wounds are fresh... It's a lovely tribute, not only to your own very real pain, but to someone who sounds like they had a lovely though tormented spirit. It takes an INCREDIBLE amount of love to see both sides!---To want so hard to understand.

    I'm so, so sorry for your loss... My heart is with you.

    thanks everyone, i showed it to my trauma counseller and she asked if i would let her use it in their booklet so i agreed.
    She said as it was aman that wrote it it may help other men in my situation, though i can still barely belive what has happened myself
