(1.5) Going Without Peggy

I'm going without Peggy
And it seems so strange
To be going without Peggy

So many things have changed
Since my Peggy's death,
But my love remains unchanged

She took her last breath,
Never to take another,
Passing from life to death.

And so she joins her mother,
Barely thirteen months gone,
Even in death, very like each other.

She lived, she died, it's done.
Touching so many hearts,
Mine's broken now she's gone.

Touched by Cupid's darts,
Given a brief score of years
To find and know our hearts...

So much love, so many years,
All my life has been for Peggy
For so many, but so few, happy years

And now I've lost my Peggy
And it seems so strange
To be going without Peggy

    Absolutely beautiful heartfelt very painful words, how lost we become when our loved one passes on to the other side. I truly believe they are still with us in spirit, I know we can't see them, but there are times that you just know they're there. Listen to the whispers, you'll see what I mean. I'm so happy for you that you are able to put your true feelings down so eloquently on paper for all of us to see. It's wonderful to share your thoughts. Thankyou Karl--Melvina-- (Report) Reply
