For Madoss her dear hubby
Gone too soon on Friday, 11th May 2012
They are ours but for a season,
to love and laugh while they stay
but as sure as day, then night,
one day they must go away.
You shall go through the fog
but the sun WILL shine again.
Remember when it gets dark
… and cold
HE lives in you!
My friend Anne lost her husband a very gentle man, to a violent death.
Both of them were our college mates.
We watched them fall in love,
grow in love, and we collectively applauded
when they got married.
Theirs is a heart-warming love story
that we all long for,
and just a few of us actually get.
As we stood there, saying goodbye to one of us,
face to face with our mortality,
It hit me that some of us were put here
to spread love.
Madoss was clearly here for that purpose.
And though gone too soon,
He achieved his purpose.
Fare thee well, Madoss.
