The past two years have been a long journey
Through an illness that wrought its damage
On a vibrant man, the love of your life, Mick
Now that journey has come to an end

Along the way there were days full of sunshine and laughter
And days of rain and gloom, days in the garden
Through it all the smiles were still there
Memories made to last you a lifetime

Through this journey, friends from around the world were made
Your words conveyed to us the love that you have for Mick
The same words that made us your friends, a small part of your life
You shared laughter, joy, tears and fears with us

With photos displayed, life with Mick was shared
The Joker, Holiday Maker, Hiker, the Gardener
Granddad, Dad, Son, Brother and Uncle
And most important of all, Lover and Husband to Ruth

Friends you have made were honored
To take this journey by your side
We share in the grief you feel now
And Mick will be missed by us all

Even though one journey has ended
A new one has begun for you
Each time you look to the heavens
And see a twinkling star, know that it is Mick watching over you

    Wow Sylvia this was a very melancholy poem , filled with an impending doom for Ruth and Mick, although very sad it was also well written.
    Very much a short story type of poem, thanks for sharing
