I thank all of you for such strong love, and, concern for my wife, and, I, but, I have a confession. Many of you know that I like to write a good deal of my poems based upon real life. This poem does include parts of my life, but focused on others who suffer loss, and, separation, it is dedicated to them, primarily. My wife Lil, is a breast cancer survivor, suffered the miscarriage of our son Todd in her fifth month of pregnancy, truly. dark heart wrenching painful days! The Good Lord Jesus brought us through it all, so we could be a comfort to others. Things for us today could not be better, this coming Christmas we will be visiting our Daughter, Son-in-law, and, grandkids. Health, and, finances great, going to bed last night, it was so nice hearing Lil call out; I love you!
Her plan to make you hate her was never going to work. Love doesn't work that way? It's not a switch.
I liked how you wove this heartache, how your feelings still hurt, still love her and will, always.
Ken this is beautiful and brought a tear to my eyes. The love she had was so strong that she thought to make you hate her so that you wouldn't mind quite so much when she was gone. Then the bitter sweet realisation that it was just a ploy because she loves you but knows her time is short. Your love for each other beams through the heartache like sun through the clouds and us so inspirational. Bless you both. Milly xx
My dear Ken this brought tears to my eyes. The love you both have for each other is so strong that no matter what and how hard she is trying to make you hate her it's not working. I feel her pain and frustration and what it does to you. Sending you both my sincere love
Thanks Dag, our love is strong, the couple in my poem were fictitious, although as with many married couples, the first ten years, can be the toughest! My comments posted below detail my motives, an earnest attempt to comfort other hurting people. Many hugs to you, Ken
