Tribute to Eric
by Bonnie Moss (c) 2008 -05
It's been three months since I said my last
farewell to my dearest husband, Eric.
I tried hard, but I could not get myself to write
anything about him without tears rolling down my
cheeks and burst into a crying fit. My pain was
so deep, I knew that part of me died with him.
Emptiness engulfed me.
I had no idea I'd feel so lost and disoriented
without him.I took pride in being a strong person.
I managed to keep my wits taking care of him,
knowing that the end was near.
We talked about death and dying- I was aware of
his fear of his mortality. We spent many restless
nights as his will to live kept him going.
We managed to review his life. I had him focus
on the blessings that came his way;and the difference
he made in other people's lives in his lifetime.
We talked about the good times,for we shared many.
There was the topic of forgiveness. I promised myself
that he will not depart from this life with heartaches
and pain. Yes, he was able to find peace and love.
This is a new beginning. I am back to writing, and I
will write more about Eric,his life, his legacy.
This is just the beginning. I want to share with my
readers the life and times of Eric.
