I would like to share this poem written for the book “The Sisterhood of Widows”
The winds of change came blowing across your life one day.
Little did you know the change about to come your way.
The pain you felt, the grief, the shock, no one could ever know.
But as you’ve read there are other wives who’ve had to take that blow.
They say time is a healer—you ask, can it be true?
Can the pain I feel deep in my heart, be the same for me, as you?
All who grieve will find somehow to carry on each day.
And God will give the strength you need, you simply have to pray.
