Poem -

Johnny's Helen

Helen do you know?
The love impact you left behind
How his love still grows
He sees your face everywhere he goes

He's a shadow of your love
Left behind to walk alone
Surviving on your memories
Trying to figure out how to go on

You're a part of his soul
With only half his being
He's trying so hard
Just to survive losing you

Helen

Your husband is a honorable man
He doesn't have gold
He's rich in your love
Love for you that still grows
Oh, Helen do you know?

If you can see
How proud you must be
Seeing the love displayed
Honoring your memory
Everyday with poetry

For you Helen
His love will always be
Till one day
Holding hands you both
Walking Heaven's streets
In love together again
In eternity

Helen
Residing in Heaven
Waiting on Johnny
Proving love last an eternity

Helen
I hope you don't mind
Me talking for you
Your spark still lights a room
This is my poem for you!

Helen do you know?

Awww....This was so sweet of you to write for Johnny and his dearly departed Helen that he misses so much.  Through his poems, he has let us all know how special she was and how hard it was for him to watch her suffer and let go....a part of him forever....My heart goes out to him.  I worry constantly about my Tony, and do not like to see him struggle with his disease (CIDP) and an autoimmune disorder....When you love someone, you feel empathy with their suffering and only want to give them relief and comfort.  You have a beautiful compassionate heart, Terry.  This was so sweet.  Great tribute to his dear Helen.  I wish him peace and you too...with much love, xo ;)

Cherie,. I know what you mean and I know when you are sick how compassion and love means so much. I feel so for Tony but what a blessing you love each other.  It is always wonderful and a blessing to help others  I've been writing to Johnny for sometime now.  He writes mostly on another website and his love for Helen breaks my heart.  He's a sweet man and a blessing to me.  You are a compassionate loving lady.  Off to Mom's to cook shrimp!  Love you,  Terry Kay

Johnny lost Helen
But his poetic Soulmate
Tries to ease his pain
