My Mate is Gone


Recommended Posts

Sorry George, for your loss, at least you can take heart that she will never be in any pain again, and you will see her again, when the lord calls you up. Your friend Grubstake

Like Frank, we have never meet, yet the wife and I feel as if we know you personally through this forum. At this time in your life, remember all the good things and keep looking up. HIS strength will be your peace. Our prayers are with you.

I know I'm not the only one with tears in my eyes George. It is never fair when the good Lord takes a loved one and the relief at the end of Norma's suffering leads to an emptiness that only you can feel. She will be with you forever but the stark reality is that every hair is indeed numbered like Dylan wrote in Every Grain Of Sand...

In the time of my confession, in the hour of my deepest need

When the pool of tears beneath my feet flood every newborn seed

There's a dyin' voice within me reaching out somewhere,

Toiling in the danger and in the morals of despair.

Don't have the inclination to look back on any mistake,

Like Cain, I now behold this chain of events that I must break.

In the fury of the moment I can see the Master's hand

In every leaf that trembles, in every grain of sand.

Oh, the flowers of indulgence and the weeds of yesteryear,

Like criminals, they have choked the breath of conscience and good cheer.

The sun beat down upon the steps of time to light the way

To ease the pain of idleness and the memory of decay.

I gaze into the doorway of temptation's angry flame

And every time I pass that way I always hear my name.

Then onward in my journey I come to understand

That every hair is numbered like every grain of sand.

I have gone from rags to riches in the sorrow of the night

In the violence of a summer's dream, in the chill of a wintry light,

In the bitter dance of loneliness fading into space,

In the broken mirror of innocence on each forgotten face.

I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea

Sometimes I turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me.

I am hanging in the balance of the reality of man

Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand.

Words are impossible to come by with Norma's passing. There is no timetable when God calls us to his side. We can only look back at the wonderful years you had together and rejoice that you will be together again someday and until then know she is in God's Hands. I will pray for God to comfort you George.

God Bless

Geo. --- The loss of a life mate or a child is the most difficult pain we humans must bear. Thank goodness we do not have to bear that pain alone . You have many friends here !!! Lean on us when the need arises ! We all care and value your feelings as family members do!

An excerpt from a poem written by Longfellow says: "Life is real, Life is earnest, and the grave is not it's goal. Dust thou art, to dust returneth was not written of the Soul." Your mate's soul waits for yours. Please be comforted in the knowledge she waits with The Lord. Coda & his wife.

I am saddened to hear this news. Norma was one in a billion and so are you. You do not walk alone at this time, everyone on this forum shares your pain and sadness. Stay strong...............
