Twenty-four hours to let you know how I'm doing and how well I've learned to take care of myself. I've longed to tell you how I miss the safeness I always felt in your arms and wish ... and wish ... No, I wouldn't need 24 hours ... The pain ... I would not want you to endure again.

An hour Lord, to say "I'm so happy you were mine and I was yours". We had the grace of sharing a deep abiding love, so many dreams realized. We were also blessed with courage to get through any crisis hand in hand, heart to heart. You were courageous ... Battling cancer. Fighting so hard to stay with me ... but God ... The price of my prayer would cause you agony.

Just one minute dear Lord, time enough to say ... "You'll always be in my heart ... I'll always love you sweetheart, how I miss what we had together". But even that 60 seconds you would be in pain. I remember your anguish ... your suffering.

Curled up in your chair for hours now, in the quiet, peaceful night hoping my grief will soon subside. I pray for a sign. I hear a voice from deep within my spirit, very strong yet ever so gentle ... His voice tenderly tells me ... "He knows, Echo ... he knows..."

Words can't express the emotions this piece
makes me feel, and could not do justice for
such a beautiful piece of work!!!!

It is hard to know how to respond. I feel the pain...taste the grief. I sat on the sidelines and watched my wife go through this with her father, this Summer. I will not belabor...the hollow platitudes of caring friends who have no idea what to say but yet feel compelled to speak. Instead, I think I will just give you a:

***HUG***

Richard...Thank you so much for you comment!

Inclan...Thank you for the hug. I am sorry to hear about your wife and her father, I know how tough that was, so *hugs* to her as well!

Dragoness...Thank you for your comment and for your hug as well!

Ruth...Well, I don't think you will be saying that cause I'm not taking my poetry to any extremes. But if I did, I am glad to know, some people would remember me

Echo, this was great. I know I'll definately remember you. I know you don't know me or anything, but from reading about what you've been through and how you've gotten through it all, you're a role model for me. I'm going through a lot of stuff right now, and just being able to see someone who's been there is making it just the slightest bit easier for me. Thank you.

Echo, you know how I feel about your poetry! And I think Hoot is right. You don't give yourself enough credit for the talent you have. So that's why we do it! hehe
This was beautifully done and brought tears to my eyes. Wonderful work!

Y'all should see her drawings too! Talk about talent! WOW!
