The storm clouds are piling high.
Life comes to an end for us all,
And I thought I was prepared:
I'm not, as I found out last night,
To see him answer his final call.
The ache in my heart is severe
As I watch him suffer and weaker grow.
So I decided to keep a journal
To honor the man I love and revere.
We've faced so much over the years,
Together, side by side as one.
The laughter, the joy, the giving
Were more important than the tears.
Yet the tears watered and fed
Our lives, melding us tighter
Into the combined force we've become
Along the rocky road we've been led.
To Robert, my life, my love,
I dedicate these words I write
To honor and remember our life
Until he leaves for his home above.
