I would like the memory of me to be a happy one. I would like to leave an after glow of smiles when life is done. I would like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways of happy times, laughing times and bright and sunny days. I would like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun of happy memories, that I leave, when life is done….
My last visit (Honey bunny)
It's time to say goodbye. I am so sad, mouth is dry, slowly I bend over and give you a kiss. The times we spent together, I will miss. When I pulled away with this pain in my heart. Jimmy my (Honey bunny) I didn't want you to leave me. I did not want us to be apart. Sadly, I know, this goodbye is forever but our many memories, I will always cherish, and remember It's all for the best. I learn to face that you are free from pain and in a better place. I love you so much and I know that you're looking down on me and will always and forever love yourself some ''Baby'' like I love my self some Honeybunny with all my unbreakable heart. Paula, your life companion………2019
