is really just love.
All the love you want to give, but cannot.
All of that unshared love gathering in the corners of your eyes,
The lump in your throat, and in the heart place in your chest.
Love with no place to go.
— from Jamie Anderson (words reworked in my heart)
Someone most precious in my life,
A life journey shared,
Here in this life, was called Walter Doyle.
Always greeted everyone with a warm smile
As if he’d been waiting for that one his whole life.
When he spoke, it was almost at a whisper,
So you paid close attention to every word.
Carried his own pain.
Yet ALWAYS turned it into light and love
