My late wife and I were having some trouble and were not embraced at this time of our sorrows. It troubled me so badly, I started losing sleep over it. Upon writing this poem we worked through our troubles as we always have to a degree. I loved her so and miss her even more.

My wife,

Shannon Darnell

May you R.I.P

Rest in peace Shannon, I love and miss you very very much, until we meet again.


As we lay next to each other, 

not embraced, 

it breaks my heart. 


We wake each morning day, 

holding one another, 

but still never embraced. 


It tears at my being, 

that I long to be with you. 


As my heart yearns and longs, 

to touch your heart, 

to caress your mind, 

and to embrace your soul. 


It’s endless as to the touch of a flower. 


I have searched the highs and lows, 

the mountain’s to the sea’s, 

and the sea’s to the heaven’s above. 


And now the embraceable has been found, 

in a yearning heart like mine. 


For the beauty that she shows,

the love that she shares, 

is far beyond anything I have dreamed of. 


To this, I thank you, 

for the embrace that you have given to me,

that I have only dreamed of to be.
