Today, I received a newsletter from our hospice company, indicating it has been 9 months since my husband passed and that they understand how difficult it has been.  Inside the newsletter was a lovely poem called....

Peace in My Soul

It was such an awesome day
And I stopped to stare at the sky.
My heart skipped a beat as I heard you speak.
When you asked the angel, "Why?"

"I wrote 'I love you' in the sky
As big and plain as can be
How can she stand down there and look up here
And still not be able to see?"

The clouds were broken and thin,
And swirled randomly through the air
I searched and strained at all that remained
Of the swirls of white still there.

The angel's voice was soft and low
As I smiled and raised a brow,
And I heard her say in the sweetest way
"She's starting to see it now."

There's a bittersweet peace in my soul
And a sense of awesome pride
Knowing you're up there writing
Words in the air,
And our love never died.
