Silent footsteps....

         By Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

I walk along this lonely path of life
Your foot falls silent here.
But loving you was wonderful and 
I wouldn't have missed a year!

Memories crowd my mind and heart
So many I am blessed!
Our love did not stop when losing you
It just grew stronger and became a greater part
Of all that I am today.

Two years have passed since you left me here
All alone and feeling blue
But my belief is strong that we shall meet 
In God's heaven and I will again be joined with you.

♥ ♥♥♥♥♥♥

When first I fold my hands in prayer,
All those far away are present here.
If not in sight, they are in my heart
God unites us in every part
  Together on this day.

Another Thanksgiving memory
With family, a gift from God to me
I will look back on this day, 
  and smile at what was your way
To make me laugh in times past.

The warmth of candles, oven and love
Filling the kitchen, my heart and some~
Left over to spill on days ahead
I'll remember all as I break my bread
On ordinary days.

All God's love from up above
As the Egret flies and Mallards come
Visiting the bank in Autumn sun,
Gracing my world with the Holy One.

Thanking you for every tiny thing
You have ever given to me
For without you Lord and my memories,
Where would this soul be?

Good night burning embers in the sky
Good night Mallards floating by
Good night silhouetted trees against the sky
Good night to all the birds that fly
Silently above the clouds to find
Their roosting place that will be kind
      Until the morning light...
