eulogy

i read a eulogy last night

a man wrote for his wife

he called her

a dear friend

and spoke of her grit and fight

her smile

and how much he misses her

yet he never said how much he loved her

my heart broke a little bit

when i die

the words I want to hear

before goodbye

i loved her

she was the love of my life

i loved how she walked into a room

how she caught my eye

across a maze of strangers

how she laughed

how she loved

fiercly

me

dogs

butterflies

how good she wore a pair of jeans

and boots

how my heart

so broken

feels empty

that one day

in a different time

a different place

we will meet again

and i will know those brown eyes

soulmates

old souls

serendipity

And then toss my ashes out to sea

Set my soul and all hearts free
