Dearest Husband

I thank you with all of my heart

For sharing this journey called life

I’ll be forever grateful

That I was blessed to be your wife

Grateful to have held your hand

To have loved you throughout the years

Amidst life’s joys and challenges

In times of happiness and tears

Blessed to have built a life with you

To have shared so many things

Moments I’ll treasure with all my heart

Memories that mean everything to me

I can hardly accept you’ve been taken away

I can hardly bear the thought

Of facing the future without you here

I’m still not sure how I’ll get through the loss

Yet I’m comforted by how much you loved me

And this knowledge is helping me through grief

Always remembering the closeness we shared

That brought us both such happiness and peace

And so…I thank you, Dearest Husband

For all you’ve meant to my life

I’m so grateful that we found each other

And for the blessing of being your wife
