Husband's musings about his wife, now no more

My wife and I were busy,
Each of us being a doctor.
Often we had little time
For self or for each other.

Medical profession keeps
Doctors busy day and night.
We had our quota of
Both love and domestic fight.

Although work kept us away,
We knew truly in our heart
That in spite of busy life
We were never far apart.

Now you are with me no more,
Full eight years have elapsed.
But not a waking moment,
Without your thought I have passed.

No more your looks, no gestures,
Now no more for me your smile.
You, though in another world,
Are in my thoughts all the while.

But your memories are now,
Of my life, integral part.
Even now, truly I say,
We are never far apart.
