Jody and I still talk a lot, 14 months after her death. A lot of love passes between us.
My dear wife tells me, “We will be together again in this physical life.” And I sit open to this possibility, even when my rational brain is poo-pooing the idea. I so much want to hold Jodiette again.
I heard Jane Lewis in concert a couple of nights ago. She wrote a song called “Tend Me Like A Garden” and I’ve cried every time I’ve played it in the car.
Tend me, tend me like a garden
Love me, love me like the rain
I will give you all that you can harvest
‘Til the first frost steals me away
The coldness of death has indeed stolen my love away. I’m lonely without my wife. She loved me like the rain, and still does.
I will love you through all of the seasons
I’ll weather what the fall and summer bring
I may lay fallow in the winter
But I swear that I’ll remember you in spring
“Remember me, Jodiette, until we meet again.”
“I certainly will, Brucio … with great love.”
