Of course your family and
Friends miss you terribly.
Your husband (widower? Oh no!)
Seems unsure what to do with himself.
Your grandchildren are puzzled
Wondering where you are
The dogs and horses donít seem to understand
Where you went and why youíre not coming back.
Those of us who are older than the children,
Though apparently not wiser, try to explain
What we donít understand ourselves.
Where are you so we can tell them something?
The day drags on as tears flow
Non-stop and flood the house.
The day that seemed to last forever
Finally ends, momentarily releasing us
From the severe pain in the house.
The star-lit sky you loved so much
Seems brighter now, as if another
Star is there, and now I know where you are.
As you twinkle and shine, I hope
Youíre happy there, and I bet you are.
