People Tell Me

October 2022

People tell me that

I am doing all the right things

I have to remind myself that it is true

No longer at my side I keep her in deep in my heart

My heart overflows with my love for her

Where did you think these tears came from?

 

At her memorial my sister said that my bride could say

“oh Danny” in a myriad of ways  

 

She would say it when she was

pleased with me or when I needed a scolding or two  

 

I miss the “oh Dannys” as much as I miss her laughter

Didn’t matter if it was directed at me or with me

I miss our strolls in Manhattan, trips to Cape May or trips across the sea

I miss dancing with her, she could move, she was so beautiful

I miss her smile, when she smiled everything was right with the world

I miss our hugs and my arm around her as we would watch a show

 

People tell me that

I am doing all the right things

I have to remind myself that it is true

No longer at my side I keep her in deep in my heart

My heart overflows with my love for her

Where did you think these tears came from?
