By Michael A Gelb

Sorry for the arguments we’ve had
Especially those that were bad

Sorry for things asked of me
When you did something I couldn’t see

Sorry that I always seem mad
Losing my wife I’m angry and sad

Sorry I may hear things in the wrong way
And how something wrong I might say

Sorry to know my children are grown
Because I have to let them be on their own

Unfinished life

Unfinished life
By Michael A Gelb

Joey was the girl that I married
For the years my name she carried

We made a family my wife and I
When she passed I did cry

What will be with the rest of my life
Someday again to be with my wife

I would like to say to my wife thank you
Also again to say I do

I wish she was here to see
What our grandchildren will grow to be

From a young girl to a woman to my wife
She’s gone and left an unfinished life


By Michael A Gelb

What is the meaning for the word trigger
To me the meaning is some what bigger

Many things I could share
It’s a meaning that can bring on a tear

To some of us it could be a word
For some it might be a bird

Maybe a dog or a cat
Or maybe just a place we are at

Something that reminds me of my wife
I may cry or be mad or just hate my life

Fear No More

Fear no more
by Michael A Gelb

I always thought of the day I would die
To say that I wasn’t afraid would be a lie

Since my wife is gone who I love and adore
So now to die I fear no more

Precious Things

Precious things
by Michael A Gelb

Finding out a father I was to become
My love, my wife to become a mom

In time being a father of three
They would be precious things to me

As a father I gave it my best
Protecting them in our little nest

Now my little three are all grown
They have precious things of their own

The most precious things in life
Your family, your children, your wife

Moments in Time

Moments in Time
by Michael A Gelb

For more than half of my life
I was married to my darling wife

Truly my first love was she
I hope she still loves me

I loved and protected my wife
So much I would give my life

Some special moments we did share
It’s the time and emptiness now I fear

Right from the start
I was hers she owned my heart

In my daughters I can see my wife
But it doesn’t fill the void in my life

The painful days of December will be here
Her birthday and Christmas they share

January was the month she passed
How long will this pain last
