No Reply from Heaven

  I received a response yesterday to my post “Tears in the Closet”.   My friend reminded me of the “extreme separation”, which are the words...

I Never

I Never

I never expected to meet someone quite like you,
but I always looked for you in every man I met.
I never heard of you before we met that night,
but God always heard our mother's prayers.
I never saw as much beauty in the things of this world,
but you always opened my eyes to see things with yours.
I never dreamed marriage could be so lovely,
but ours always was because we moved as one.

I never looked at another man.
I never dreamed of another man.

I never loved another man.
I never felt another man.

I never wished for another man.
I never knew another man.

But.....

I always looked to you.
I always dreamed of you.

I always loved only you.
I always felt inside of you.

I always wished for you.
I always knew all of you.

We always agreed to never say "always" or "never"
when we were hurt by one another.
I am hurting now, 
but I will never forget the love that you always lavished on me.
I will never forget the way your hand always slipped into mine.
I will never forget how you always gently handled our children.
I will never forget that look you always gave to me, alone.

I never knew I would lose you.
I never thought I would have to learn to miss you.
I never thought I would finish this road alone.
I never wanted anything....but more of you.
