Blessing My Heart

by Maple Tree   Jan 23, 2012

As he lays beside me sleeping
I can't help but feel so helpless
positive healing fills our days
but as he sleeps, I retreat to writing

And cry, a lot....

His battle with cancer is a daily reminder for me
to love him more than I did the day before
kiss him longer than I did thirty minutes ago
and to never take for granted
the gift of his sweet love

So I run my fingers through his dark, thick hair
wipe the tear from eye, and whisper softly
"Thank You for blessing my heart"

    Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm now that hurts me too. Life is beautiful but without emotion. The emotions come from us. Thanks for sharing a piece like this. I'm moved.

    Heart wrenching, truly touches ones heart, wakes you up, makes you realize to live each day to the fullest cause you just never know, love with all that you have and all that you are, thank the powers that be that you are blessed to have each other... its hard to always be strong, you've gotta let it out... as always, you've touched me with your words...

    I don't know what to say,

    I have read this poem many times and I have attempt to leave a comment but I can't seem to find the right words. I just feel like crying everytime I read it but somehow I feel hope written all over this piece.
    It's sad yet tender and it fascinates to know that this type of love exist. I wish I could explain with words how I feel but I can't.

    God bless you both.
