Widowhood Is Not Funny

What Do I Do With My Heart?

It occurred to me as I listened to this song by the Eagles, that this is also the plight of the widow.

We can learn new skills, try new experiences and rediscover talents left lying dormant, sometimes for years. We can even start brand new lives, with admonitions to ourselves to not live in the past, at least not too much.

But the question still remains—what do we do with our hearts? When we said “I do” at our wedding, we gave our hearts to the men we loved. Now, those men are no longer with us. So, what do we do with our hearts?

Some of us may find love again and give our hearts to someone new. To those of you who do, I wish you much happiness.

If you’re like me, you didn’t give your heart lightly, but you gave it forever. The vows say, “Til death do us part.” But I love him still and I always will. My heart is his and always will be.
