Thanksgiving 2012 

    by Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart ©

The Holidays are coming up
We will miss your wearing the 
  Turkey net
Upon your lovable, white head.
You always made us smile and 
While we were cooking the  
  festive spread.

It's the first Thanksgiving 

  without you
I really kind of dread
   a holiday without you

You added so much with the things you did and said.

I miss you more each day it seems

This is not how we dreamed our dreams
Of growing old together.

I know you are now with our Lord

But still I miss your Graces at every meal
   your every word
That you said to me in the beautiful
  Greeting cards.

I recall the strength and warmth 

   of holding your hand
And I will forever wear our Wedding bands
Until we meet again in Beulah Land...

I look at photos of your happy face

Your smiles follow me every place
In frames around the rooms.

I am thankful for the Love we shared

For fifty two wonderful years.
And though I am shedding "miss you" tears
I know a Guardian Angel now appears
   calming all of my fears.
I love you Bill... ♥
