Oh Sad2 thank you so much for posting the words of the song
Beautiful words from someone like us who can remember the good times and not so good but has to say goodbye
Goodbye is so hard
On Saturday I finally found a new home for my husbands electric wheelchair
This was his life
He couldn’t move at all over the last 6 years and hadn’t walked for over 25 years but in his chair he was alive and we could go out
I thought I’d be ok about it but now there is another empty space in my house
Another goodbye to a bit of him
Thank you Sad2 I’ll reread those words which are sadly comforting
Thank You for your reply Rowans.
I keep listening to the song and looking at and talking to Alan’s photos.
It’s just so hard to believe that our loved ones are no longer here, but I am sure their spirit is always with us.
I lost Alan in January 2021. We only had 10 short years together, but I miss him so much.
Sending you my love and a big hug.
Yes it is a very beautiful and sad song. I lost my wife 17 months ago and I still I listen now from time to time to this song and it still has me in floods. I think that the words are so poignant and sad. Wishing you all the very best.
It still hurts !
I hadn’t heard this song. At my husbands funeral in February I had Daniel O Donnell singing At the Rainbows End. I thought it was a beautiful sentiment to him until we meet again. I haven’t played it since as it’s too painful
It makes real sense Steve, I have his with me as I don’t yet know where it shall be. I need to downsize but unfortunately where I live I wouldn’t be able to afford a property. The family are in agreement that I wait until I move and then sort out where we can lay him to rest. It’s not an easy decision to make as I have lived here over 35 years. But needs must. I’m taking my time over it but hopefully by the end of next year I shall be ready to make the move
@jen64 Having seen your post, I just played that record. I’ve been having real problems rekeasing tears, but I sobbed my heart out, briefly stopped, then broke down again. Thank you, really helped me connect with my darling wife in the stars.
Well, i have just lit a candle for my husband. Its 12 months today that we said a final goodbye to him. Getting through this first year has been tough, i have lost family members before but never felt as bad as this. I know its because he was my soulmate and my best friend, living the rest of my life without him will be hard but it will not get me down, he would not want me to wallow in self pity but get on with life as best i can. The decision to move is one that i shall be making in the next 18 months. My home doesnt feel the same anymore, my daughter cant bear to be in the house for too long as there are to many of his things around. I am slowly going through everything and deciding what to keep. Its hard letting things go but if there is no sentiment attached whats the point of keeping them. The children and grandchildren all have their own keepsake in remembrance of him and there are certain items i will never let go. I need to downsize to make life easier as i now have arthritis so stairs are going to be a problem going forward. Hence the need for a move.
No matter where i go he will always be with me, i can then sort out where i want his ashes to lie so when my time comes we will be together again
Steve, i have my husbands ashes at home, i agree it is hard but its necessary that we do this. Material things come and go but our memories will always be with us until we are together again
