My Guy -

My Guy -

Was a Solitary Man -

And Then He Kissed Me - ;))

It seems like Only Yesterday -

That he took on me and two kids -

Not A Moment Too Soon -

And became the Dad That He Didn’t Have To Be - ;))

He had a chronic illness -

So each and every time he got sick or he didn’t feel good -

It would Take Another Little Piece Of My Heart - ;((

He was My Soul And Inspiration -

And the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me - ;))

Almost forty years ago -

We promised to love each other until the day we died - ;))

He Stopped Loving Me Today -

And I guess the world ain’t gonna stop -

For My Broken Heart - ;((

Like the song says -
I could have missed the pain -
But I'd have had to miss -
The Dance -
And we had a wonderful dance - ;))

So, honey -
If you get there before I do don’t give up on me
I’ll meet you when my chores are through
I don’t know how long I’ll be here
But I’m not gonna let you down
Darlin’ wait and see
And between now and then till I see you again
I’ll be loving you
Love, Me - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go -

You have been ever so much on my mind these days. I am so sorry for your loss.
Even when you can see it coming, it doesn't make it any easier. Take care of yourself now.

Thank you, Julie - he died peacefully, which was a blessing - but watching him die was the hardest thing that I have ever had to do. I plan to take the next few days "off" and try to adjust to my "new normal" - ;))

Karen M said...

I am so sorry for your loss. Words fail me at a time like this. Take time for the grieving process. When you are ready to share about what you are going through, I am here to listen. Love.

Gene Black said...

Peace be with you. I know that this is a difficult time. You are in my prayers.

Linda said...

Awww Kitty. Wish I had some magic words to comfort you now. Just know that I'm sending you (((hugs))) because I can't be there in person. So sorry.

Bea said...

Dear Kitty- Our hearts are with you. This is a beautiful post. Yes, you have danced a wonderful dance and fought a good fight and finished the race. Now rest, and rest, and rest for a little while...

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Bea - I'm glad you like the post - ;))

We had this little game we used to play - we tried to string together as many song titles as we could to tell a little story - using as few connecting words as possible. He was MUCH better at it than I am - so it has taken me a while. I thought that I had the "final" draft done just before he died - and signed it - "Love, Me".

I was going to post it last night after I talked to his sister - but then I realized that I had switched from talking to you guys - telling the story - to talking to him - so I tweaked the last little bit last night to include the lyrics. Now it seems "just right" - and I will try to rest - ;))

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Linda - magic words aren't needed - ((hugs)) will do just fine - ;))

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Gene - I appreciate it - ;))

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Karen - I appreciate it - ;))

Cindy Quilts said...

So sorry to hear of your lose. Prayers for you.

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks quilty mama - I appreciate it - ;))

Katie said...

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'd noticed you weren't posting much lately and now I know why. I hope you're comforted to know he's in a better place and you'll see him again someday. (But not before you make a few more quilts, right?)

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Katie - I do know that I will see him again - when the time is right. After I deal with some "ducks" - I plan to get back to a bunch of "squirrels" - ;))

Mallorie Anderson said...

I am so sorry kitty :( My thoughts, prayers, and hugs are with you.

“What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose;
All that we love deeply, becomes a part of us.”

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Mallorie - that's a beautiful quote - and he is definitely a part of me - ;))

Linda C said...

My sympathies, Kitty. You can know it is coming or have them snatched away from you and either way it is not easy. A perfect tribute in song titles as you said in replies, this was something you did together. Clever way to tell the story. He lives on in your heart, just like how my DJ lives in mine. So sorry for your loss.

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Linda - I appreciate it - ;)) With his chronic illness - joining the "Widow Club" was something that I knew that I would have to do one of these days - we all will someday - and I thought I was ready - but you are never really ready - no matter how much you think you are - and no matter how much you plan.

I miss him terribly - but I have the support of family, friends, neighbors, bloggy buddies, etc. - and life goes on - so now I'm trying to adjust to my "new normal". Funny thing - I fell in love with him - 41 years ago TODAY - ;))

Katie M. said...

Don't know why I just now saw this post. This is a beautiful tribute. You know you're hugged!

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Katie - I appreciate the hugs - ;))
