Courage to Move On

I'm moving forward,
But not leaving behind
The one I've loved in my life.
I knew the common things.
Birthdays and anniversaries
Would be hard for me now.
I might not sleep or eat well.
I look around our house
And remember her smiles,
As well as the kids' embrace.
But where is she?
Grief brings emptiness with it.
My heart aches from the pain left.
Life is precious and short.
To heal, I do what moves me.
Or, do what really matters in this life.
For each new day is God's wonderful gift.
And a beautiful step into the rest of my life.

Poetic expression of love. But be like Paul, recognize God's presence. "The Lord stood at my side and give me strength." (2 Tim 4)
