Love Of My Heart


"In honor of Robert "Bob" Selig and his life. And this poem is for his beloved wife, Susan..."



























Love of my heart

Love of my soul,

I had to say goodbye

But now your are whole.

How will I live

Without you by my side?

Why did I have

To say goodbye?

But healing for you

Was in God’s Hands,

And someday in Heaven

With you I will stand.

Love of my heart

Love of my soul,

Your battle has ended

And now you are whole.

How my heart aches

And my soul it grieves,

That you are gone

And that you had to leave.

But your suffering has ended

And eternal life begins,

Oh how I miss you

My lover, my friend.

Love of my heart

Love of my soul,

Your victory has started

And now you are whole.

(For my friend Susan Selig in the loss of her husband Bob and laying him to rest today. Gone from this life, but present with the Lord. Robert "Bob" Selig: March 3, 1950-November 4, 2021.)
