Oh for a cuddle.....
« on: April 03, 2016, 01:39:05 AM »
What I wouldn't give to be able to snuggle down in bed for a cuddle!!

Forget the early years of not being able to keep your hands off one another  :grin: .

What I miss is just snuggling down in bed and having someone there at the side of me. A goodnight kiss and a hug.

I'll never get over losing her and I used to think that eventually
I would learn to live with it - that's not happened yet.

Morning is here again and I'm feeling just as morose as I was at 2a.m when I finally go into bed to listen to a book. At least that always puts me to sleep  :smiley:  Now the sun is shining and I'm going to get the lawnmower out so I'll feel OK for a few hours.

 :hug: it's important to have hugs from friends if you can, I know it won't replace your beloved, but hugs are good for us
There's always a virtual hug for you here xx
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. 
Hold on in there xx

Thank you both  :heart:  Lawns look better. So now I think it's time to go and see my brother/sister-in-law coz I happen to know they've just put the kettle on  :coffeetoast:

 :hug: sending a virtual hug from me too.I still miss hugs but have to confess the dog got to sleep in my bed from very early on.He doesn't have cold feet but he does have a cold nose and is equally able to steal the duvet and take up all the space.
So rare to be fine on a day off but being in the garden helps I find.Am currently relocating my pond so back breaking work I,dug up and relocated two hazel shrubs and dug half a hole,but lots to do before that project is finished.lighter nights will help too,I hate coming home to an empty house but its worse in the dark when I can't get out in the garden.

Midnight once more has come and gone
And I still sit forlorn and all alone,
remembering.

An echo of past happy times
May offer some relief from pain
remembering.

Did I say loved, no love is what I should have said
I know I do - I am
remembering.

She is not gone, she's with me still
and all she loved I love as well
remembering.

It's time to sleep, if sleep will come
but if not,then no matter, I'm
remembering.

Good night all  :heart:

Six months come and gone
2am and I'm here alone
or am I, no
she's here with me
watching what I do
she can't speak but I feel her
near, loving as she ever was
sleep my darling she says
and know that I love you
- I love you too
I'll never get over losing her and I used to think that eventually

There's something about the second half of a bottle of wine that makes me want to put what I'm feeling into words. Chris would be astounded - not like the other me at all. Ho hum better get some breakfast. Completely forgot to take my tablets yesterday morning so perhaps I should do that first  :whistle:

Had to re-read that as it sounded as if you'd had the second half of a bottle of wine before breakfast :)

I assume you had the wine and wrote the poem the previous night, and you're now on breakfast?

2am -in the poem so i,m guessing it was very early breakfast or there was a gap.

Longedge i was suprised when clearing out the garage to find a poem my husband had written shoved in a box. I have no idea when he wrote it, possibly at the beginning of our relationship I have a verse from it printed out on a background of our favourite holiday spot at sunset, complete with own and dolphin on the wall at work,as a sort of inspirational guide when i,m having a bad day.
"fly to the future round hurdles and bends
and ride out the storms that nature sends
despite tattered feathers and tired wings
never forget that every bird sings"

so write away with or without wine because i think poetry is healing to write as well as to read.

 That's right :heart:  I tend to sleep when I feel the need rather than at a fixed time. I'd opened a bottle of red last night and once open the bottle usually gets finished! For some reason as I get to the bottom of the bottle, nowadays I feel the urge to put my thoughts into words :laugh:.

I finally got to bed just before 3am and listened to my book for half an hour (well I set the timer for 30 minutes but actually heard about 20 minutes).
