Re: hello everybody

Dear Lynn, just to see your post tells me you are trying and doing a pretty good job at it. We both know that WAS George catching some rays of sun with you. If you don't mind I would like to send you this poem I wrote about 5 months after Teddy passed. Oh and I just know how proud of you George is!

How Are You Doing?

Everyone asks me how I’m doing since you went away,
With a smile on my face I answer, “I really am okay”.
Matter of fact its very hard but I promised to be strong,
Until the time we meet again, in your arms where I belong.

In the morning when I wake, once where there was warmth all night,
There’s nothing but an empty space and a pillow to hold tight.   
Our closet now holds all my clothes it still looks kind of strange,
I try to make it look like more and constantly rearrange.

When I’m in the kitchen and working at the sink,
Many times I stop and this is what I think…..
If Teddy was here he’d grab me to give a little cue,
That he was about to hug me and say his, “I love you”.

No more are the corny jokes that grew longer by the year,
What I wouldn’t give now for just once more, to hear.
When someone calls, your message is still kept on the phone,
That way no one knows I am really home alone. 

When day is over and dinner is eaten by one, 
No more thank you-s for the meal well done.
Can’t find anyone to cream or scratch my back
There’s just a big hole here, a hole of midnight black.

But, how am I doing? I’m doing okay,
I know that you would want it that way.
And I know you are with me morning to night,
Still watching over me, that every things all right!

Re: hello everybody

GOSH! Lynn you are something else. YEA! What a story. Makes me happy that you understand the concept that if the boys are around us and we see things like that it brings us so much comfort! Absolutely I would add that penny to the necklace!

Re: hello everybody

Lynn...The first of everything, especially the Holidays are difficult for us, but things ease a bit in the time to come.  I wish for a peaceful day with George and for your heart to continue to heal - one day at a time.
Hugs,
Marion

Re: hello everybody

Dear Clare, many thanks. I find I can express exactly what I am feeling in a poem and it is very cathartic. BTW, I am so very happy that you are hangin in here with us. I felt that was very cathartic as well. I don't  think I could have gone through this last 7 years with this site and now I am addicted to it. Just think of all the friends we have made from all over the world! Amazing.

Re: hello everybody

I'm just saddened that I can't post  good updates on how my sister is doing and that it came to this from nothing so quickly.

Sorry to hijack your thread Lynn.  I meant to say in my original reply that I love the penny!  I had wanted to agree a 'sign' with my sister so that I would know it was her visiting but her decline was just too rapid and the opportunity to ask her never happened.

Re: hello everybody

thats ok Clarem,hope your doing well...

Re: hello everybody

Clare, you need to be alert and look for your Sister in other ways. I had always told Teddy if I went first I would touch his cheek like the flutter of a Butterfly and he should give me the same signal as well. OK so I was controlling him even after life! LOL  I can be sitting at the computer, at a movie or restaurtant and all of a sudden I feel this light sensation like an Eskimo kiss and it is always on the forehead or the top of my head. Sometimes it goes on forever and sometimes just for a few seconds. Look for anything in electricity like lights going off or TV going louder/softer. Look for music she loved to come on a radio and pennies like Lynn got. BTW Lynn you should tell George if he's sending money make it 100.00 bills! I LOVE our BELIEVE Club, yes I do!
