    Love & Life


    Throughout the years
    You loved my Aunt V
    The laughter, the tears
    the joy and the fears
    And still you loved
    Not four weeks have passed
    since I buried my Aunt V
    The last time we spoke
    we even managed to laugh
    Today I heard that you died this morn
    And I know why, because your heart was torn
    Hudson, eye will not cry for thee
    For you loved my Aunt V
    so BEAUTIFULLY

    Goodnight:kiss1:

    I've heard stories where someone passes on, and soon afterwards their mate also passes, because their heart was broken. Quite a touching write.

    This was really beautiful. It moved me
    for so many reasons. I too have an
    Auntie V. October will be the 1yr
    anniversary of her passing....I miss
    her so very much. This scribe made me
    smile & cry at the same time.
    I thought about her as I read it
    She's my favorite auntie.



    Much Luv

    First one and then the other ....

    Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. My aunt V died last month. Uncle Hudson, a healthy man for his age was her primary carer. Our family had a term for them "batty and bench" hahaha, they were that close. No one is really surprised, sometimes it happens within two years of each other. Hudson went to bed in the normal fashion but failed to (decided not to) wake up. It just goes to show what power lies at the center of our very Beings. Our hearts. Keep it safe and guard it well:hearts4:

    Peace
