Happy Anniversary

Post by Tom Watson » Thu Feb 02, 2006 10:39 pm

Happy Anniversary; the day is here,
My dear…
A day of onetime laughs and little gifts;
And big, to lift
The spirit and brighten the day…
Until you went away…

Now, alone rules the moment,
Holds the card unsent…
No forgotten rings, or bracelets;
Loneliness never forgets…
Only empty drawers of dressers,
Unfilled by new tops and sweaters…

Happy Anniversary; the moon shines above,
My love…
A night of quiet words, as music of romance
Moves us in our special dance…
And our special dining place on this special date,
Serves even now our meal, but only on one plate…

Now, as the background songs play,
I find the music has gone away;
As an empty booth surrounds,
I hear only the empty sound
Of one fork bump the single filled plate…
Because you’re not coming…not because you’re late…

Happy Anniversary; as my hand on the bed is lingering,
My lovely darling…
What a wonderful time this is,
To hold all of our years in a kiss;
And as I warm the cold sheets before you get in…
Cold alone drains my warmth, never to be shared again…

i really am surprised she doesnt slap you around after she awww's at such words mister... i'm sure it pisses her off to no end that she cant.. lol. i can just picture her fuming about and trying to smack some sense in to you and then yelling at Angels and demanding a way to make contact to show you that she is still here, every day and every night, watching over you and sometimes with furrowed brows...

Exactly what Terry said... Imagine her trying to slap you around, frustrated that she cant make contact... But, Tom... She must still be so proud, holding her head high, with tears lingering in the eye after reading all of your writes to her... Also,... to have shared such deep love and to still find herself in your heart... she must love you even more, Tom...
And as I watch you in this light
I never realized your eyes were full of
So many colors.

The day has come and gone
Yet, the memories still linger on
Still haunted by the scent our your presence,
I am celebrating with the essence
Of your spirit and your heart
Sitting, standing, walking, sleeping, alone...but never apart.

A belated "Thank you" Shawn.

This was my original anniversary of absence writings... I...well, I have gained a new scar, lost a little hair, grown more grey yet little else has changed;
she is the same in my memories and heart and half of my bed remains absent of her warmth...nothing has changed.

And the pain of a love, lost
No more...
Eternally joined by the cross,
Together they soar...
A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy? -Einstein
