Once upon a time In my life
along time ago I fell for a girl
loved her at first sight and knew
I'd marry her never a drought this was my one and only dream to ever to come
true
Sometimes In life your not even looking for anyone but It just happens like with Helen and I so special
what
we had never thought she would pass on so soon and I have to face the world
alone
Johnny walker Jun 30
So blessed was I with each kiss and smile she gave to
me the hugs
and to feel the warmth of her body that keep even the coldest days
at bay
For I had true love and she was the one for I had no drought In
my mind this love was for real for love like this one doesn't find every day so lucky I was but
the day that I lost her my whole world
fell
apart for I
knew there'd not be another for she was the one and knew In my heart this world had been kind
to me
once
but It would never be kind to me not ever again for Its knows
I had my time and that time has now gone but I'll hang to my memories of Helen for rest of
days
Life and death been close
to both managed to find
life with Helen and
death
I've cheated many times
both now and in the past
but somehow I've made through the
loneliness
I know I'll make the rest
of the way I still love
her so she's still 
 clinging
to
my heart afraid that I'll let
her go but I never will ever let go my survival depends on
holding her close to all our
memories So I'll keep a light on In the hall
way
at night In case her spitte should one night come calling for me and take
me away with
her
Keeping on In the hallway at night In case Helen spirits should come my
way

Spent most of my life
lock In dreams deep In
my head hiding from
the world  scared that
one day It would find
me
Most people are afraid
of death, not me I'm more afraid of living for life
without my sweetheart
can
be more frightening than death to think the rest of my life alone without my sweetheart after so many good years
together
Is Scary we shared our bed all our intimate moments our lives the places seen and been to be no more still feels so
unreal
Still a surreal feel about life alone don't think I ever come to terms with

I'm a survivor, even though the pain tragedy
the loss of my
wife
I'm a survivor childhood
abuse the beatings locked In darkness all
alone
I'm a survivor because of I
Know how to survive, and
because I want
too
I'm a survivor for I will  survive no matter how bad or whatever comes my
way
I'm a survivor because I need to keep my wife's
memory alive
through
poetry
Keeping Helen's memory alive Is how I survive for
It gave me a purpose to
life
I'm a survivor because of a friend who had helped me so much through the days of grief
I'm a survivor because want to and I'm strong enough too Im a survivor to keep Helen alive through my poetry writing I will survive

I promised you.
I wish I didn't,
I wish I could say something for you.
I want to be your voice,
But I know you don't want anything said.
And I want to respect you,
I just hope your voice is around the corner,
But until then I'll fight for you in silence.
I promised, and I won't break my promise.

It's only a few months ago
never once had I written a
poem ever before In my life, but being Inspired to write through the very
sad loss of my dearest wife
In order to keep her memory alive
And keeping a promise made to myself began to write poetry, but learned by so much the review's that I got and reading poetry of other's
That they all help me so much In keeping my dear wife Helen's memory
alive
Thanks to all, for you'll know who you are for keeping the memory of Helen so much alive God
Bless Her Soul
