A Widow(er)s Journey by DKN

A Widow(er)s Journey by DKN

I have flown through the fog of loss,
Swam in the sea of uncertainty,
Waded through the river of denial,
Wallowed in the wilderness of despair,
Ran through the gauntlet of pain,
and walked the path of loneliness.

Still I stand;
And maybe one day…

I’ll fly through clear blue skies,
Swim in a sea of tranquility,
Wade through the river of life,
Wallow in the wilderness of wonder,
Run through pastures of peace,
and walk the path of love,

and find that there I stand…
basking in the warmth of a new and brighter day.

This was written by a widower who posted it on a board that I frequent.  I thought it was beautiful and touching and I asked for permission to post it.  May 2011 bring more healing to all who have suffered losses.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
