A New Beginning

A Quiet New Year's Eve...
    ©Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart 1/1/2013

Last New Year's Eve I woke you up
When midnight rang the New Year in.
We softly kissed as we always did
And prayed for a miracle once again.

No midnight kiss, no loving Bill,

No miracle did our Lord fulfill.
My first New Year's Eve without you.

I miss you so, holidays have been empty

  Without your love and wonderful smiles.
And my smiles are certainly few
  As I face another year without you.

I do have wonderful memories

  of all the things that made us one
I know you are in heaven now
  With the Father and the holy Son.

I pray I told you often enough

  How much I loved and appreciated
Your warmth, your love, your kisses and such
  That still warm my heart so very much.

But God has given me hope and strength

  That I never imagined I had
And yes, I know I will live on 
  Even though I lost the best friend and love
I ever had~
