In Loving Memory

My True Love Hath My Heart

My true-love hath my heart, and I have his,
By just exchange one for another given:
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss,
There never was a better bargain driven.
My true-love hath my heart.

His heart in me keeps him and me in one.
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides:
He loves my heart, for once it was his own.
I cherish his because in me it bides.
My true-love hath my heart

His heart is shattered, because mine passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon, December 17th at 3:25 pm. We were together until the very bittersweet end and he suffers no longer. It has been an incredible privilege to be his wife, his lover and partner for the past decade. We have both been blessed by so many, having had so many prayers and positive thoughts sent our way, especially during this past year. Alfred wanted me to express his gratitude to those who have "been here" for us both and my own gratitude joins his. Thank you all for your continued prayers, hugs, love and support. Each of you, just like my beloved was, is a gift from the God of my Understanding to me.
