FFfAW – Goodbye My Love

He had been married to her since he was 20 years old and they were married 45 years. Sadly, cancer took her one week ago after a long courageous battle.

Although he knew that death would happen it didn't make it any easier when she died. He held her in his arms, dropped his head into her chest and cried like a baby. It wasn't going to be easy for him to let her go.

He sighed deeply as they released the doves and he realized she was finally free from all the pain. For a moment, he was happy.


Thank you Wildverbs for our photo prompt this week!

    • Thank you so much EagleAye! When I saw the photo, it reminded me of the doves that were released at my mother’s graveside funeral. Actually, I think they were homing pigeons but they were suppose to represent doves.

  1. Knowing that one is free from pain, though in another realm, can be the only comforting factor for the grieving soul. This story got me emotional, PJ.

  2. Remembered my Mother, who crossed over last February. She battled cancer like a warrior queen.

    A very poignant tale this. Thank you for sharing.

I would love to read your thoughts...
