I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

A love letter

I lie down each night to go to sleep,always making sure I thank the Lord for you entering my life before closing my eyes.I cherish each touch of your hand,each tone of your voice.You have given me a lifetime of joy and love in such a small timeframe.Thankyou Baby.I love you.James xxx

Every morning when James went to work,he would leave me a note on the coffee table.They are my most treasured possessions.

Last night he said to me"can I go now"...I said.."whenever your ready Baby"
Where there is love,there is no fear.

Love never dies...isn't that wonderful!!! It is hard to let go, this I know, but it is necessary to transition, as you know so well.

Ride easy, my dearest James...brother of my heart!! Go ride Harley's in Heaven. Dave is waiting. Take his hand...step over into the Land of Perpetual Sunshine. Goodbye for now. I will see you soon!! I love you!!

Blessed be...

I think James is just getting ready for the next adventure..the next ride.I still think it will be a few days yet.Although he has stopped eating hes still awake and yesterday I got him to fold the laundry(its good to keep busy;)
Hes quiet now and mostly just lies in bed..we play music and he reads his bible all the time.
Now that he has my permission to leave,he will begin to get ready..
We still have a bit of time left..

these words are so hard to read. i cannot comprehend how hard they are to write. and worst to live.

you love him and your love for him puts him first. that is plain to see and read. your giving him permission to let go is the most unselfish and most loving act that you could ever give him. and the most hardbreaking for you honey.

i'm sorry.

i'm so sorry.

Dave is waiting and so is God. And Bev, we will all be here to catch you hon. whatever we can do or say.

This must be so hard for you. I want to be there for you if you ever need me. Stay strong, and treasure each and every moment as you have been!

You are a braver soul than am I. For when my love was near death, "I am not ready!" was my cry.
Tears roll down my cheeks right now, God bless you and James for your love is so ... WOW!

I just don't know what to say. So beautiful and so sad. I am so touched by you and James. I just can't find the words to express how much admiration I have for you and how amazing I think you two are. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I have stopped by from a link on Dear Chana's site. I am praying for you and yours. You are brave and thoughtful sharing your journey together for others to read. God Bless.
As an aside, I wanted to share some lyrics I know by a group called, Rajaton from Finland. They were hear to sing with my Daughter's group in October and the all sung this piece appropriately called:


Sweet as the sound of my new formed wings
I stretch them open, I let them dry
I haven't seen this world before
But I'm excused, I'm a butterfly

Sweet as the touch of your newborn wings
We fly in circles, we play with the sun
We haven't seen this world before
So fair, so bright, so blue the sky

Love me, love me on the leaves
Before we say goodbye
Love me, kiss me with the breeze
You will be my lullaby
Tomorrow I'll die
Tomorrow I'll die
Tomorrow I'll die
Tomorrow I'll die
Be my lullaby

Love me, kiss me with your breeze

Love me, love me on the leaves

Love me, love me on the leaves
Before we say goodbye

Sweet as the wind as it gently blows
The day away. And the night time comes
Great are the wonders that silence shows
I fall asleep and I dream of the sun

And my butterfly

Peace and God's love with you...

I had meant to give you a link to the group singing it...I am not really in here these days, but I have it now....take a listen. ( And thanks for your kind wishes and comments on my blog. I appreciate your thoughts especially when it is you and your beloved that deserve all the goodness the world can offer.)
Again, God Bless.
