Dedicated to all the loved ones in my life
Those who have left before me
Those who walk by my side
And those I am yet to know…
From the moment of my husband’s terminal cancer diagnosis, I found that writing poetry helped to relieve my grief as I lived in expectation of his death. During his illness, I wrote many poems and continued to write them for some time after he passed away. My poetry enabled me to unburden my anguish and this was a great help to me as I travelled my journey of grief and loss. I came to think of my poems as tear drops as so many teardrops fell during their creation.
My poems tell their own story. Beginning with my husband’s diagnosis, they portray my thoughts and emotions throughout the two years of his illness to his ultimate death and go on to describe my journey of grief and healing as I searched for and eventually found new meaning for my life.
Through words we touch the hearts of others. I hope that my book of Teardrops touches your heart and that my words are remembered long after the last poem is read.
