My Bill

My Bill
    ©Kerrie O’Hearn Marquart

The house is empty
The tools are still
Life on earth has stopped 
For my Sweet Bill.

The silence in the hall and rooms
Is deafening as about it looms
Now that half of me is gone.

The pillow where you lay your head
Is empty now as I had always dread,
And I still tell you how much I love you.

The Egret still flies
The birds still sing
But they no more bring Joy
Now that you are gone
I feel the sting
Of life going on without you.

Thank you for the happy years
Every prayer you said, 
Brought joy to my ears, 
As you prayed for both of us
To have a long and happy life.

My tears are flowing 
My heart wants to burst
I’ve lost my love
That I loved first
At the very moment our eyes met.

Love at first sight
Love at last.
All I have are the memories
52 years of great harmony
When we both lived as one.

I LOVE YOU BILL ♥ 2/1/2012
