His Chair

Posted by on January 15, 2020

She sat in his chair with a faraway stare
Reminiscing on times long ago
The day they were married, the dear ones they buried
And how their love continued to grow
Though the going was rough they never gave up
The love they shared would not dim
Oh how her heart ached, she felt it might break
As she faced a world without him
For the time now had come, when she was alone
And she missed him so very much
She rubbed the arms of his chair as though he were there
Longing to again feel his touch
Her life had now changed, her world rearranged
Only cherished memories did abide
Through laughter and tears, the good and lean years
They had experienced it all side by side
Through floods and fire, the muck and the mire
It seemed they missed out on success
Looking back on their life as husband and wife
I know they were abundantly blessed
But she always knew that one day she too
Would be called as God had called him away
In his chair she would wait, and their life contemplate
Until she would join him one day
