Sometimes, I wonder. Does John miss me the way I miss him? Or is he off involved in exciting new things and doesn’t have time to miss me? I wouldn’t want him to be sad, but I wouldn’t want to be forgotten either.
I’ve had this thought… that I act out in my head…
Whenever we meet again… John and I give each other a warm embrace. With tears in my eyes I tell him how much I missed him and how much I love him. He hugs me back and then says, “Mary, I want you to meet someone.”
And he introduces me to his beautiful Angel Wife. Not just beautiful… drop dead gorgeous… with a heavenly glow.
I’m shocked and stunned.
Then they show me their beautiful Angel Daughter who shines as radiantly as her halo and is beyond beautiful. Sweet, charming, polite. The epitome of the perfect child— angelic.
I look at John totally stunned and unable to even speak.
He says, “Babe, I told you to find love again. I told you that you could re-marry. It’s not your fault if you didn’t listen. What did you expect me to do up in Heaven? Just sit around pining for you? Sit around waiting for you? Cry and be sad for the next several decades? Honey, life moves on… even when you’re dead. Sweetie, I’ll always love you, but things are different now.”
And then… yet again… I’m left alone…
