My love's hair is as black as a Raven's wing.
His eyes greener than grass in Spring.

My heart he carries in his pocket..A piece of my auburn hair in a Golden locket.

His kiss is one I will not forget. Even when I am old and grey I will taste the Love he felt for me in my memories..

by Nita Barrow-Zimmerman

Written for John long ago.

I miss the sound of your voice...and the way you drowned me in your love.

They are not
Stars in the sky
But rather openings
Where Our loved ones shine down
To let us know
They are happy.

dear beautiful Nita,
it began as a lump in my throat and ended tenderly with tears upon my cheek...

I'm certain your John knows how much you love him and I just pray that your tender heart always holds tight to the fact that God has prepared a place for you, and a mansion,that you may spend eternity with Him and your beloved John.

I promise to not be such a stranger... there is so much love and beauty here.

thinking of you xoxo
