As time passes and the days turn to weeks, then turn to months and now almost 2 years have gone by…doesn’t change my love, my memories and my gratitude for every moment I spent with my beautiful Solveig. Though I have found a way to move forward and feel happiness in my memories, doesn’t lessen the loss I feel, the loss our girls feel at losing their mother…we miss Solveig everyday…everyday, and even though we are able feel happiness again and the pain doesn’t sting like a razor cut, we still feel it…we’ll always feel it, but we can now live in the way that Solveig would be proud of.
On this day I remember, as I do every day, our wedding and the start of our life together – I didn’t think it would get cut short after 26 years and I wish we could have had more time together, but for the time we did have, Solveig and I LIVED it FULLY and HAPPILY and steadfast in our Ismaili faith and with the love we have for God – I could not imagine it any other way. Solveig has left such a legacy and I am still learning from her…how to be an even better man, a better father, a better friend, and to continue her love of life, passion and kindness to others.
As life moves forward, not on, but forward, I can smile and laugh again and forge different paths. Life must continue, and new horizons await…yet I know that the whisper I hear in the trees, in my heart and in my soul, that sign, I know is her…it will always be her, guiding, and shining above.
I miss you every day my angel Solveig and I love you with all my heart and soul, that love is special and holds a place only for you. One day, I’ll hear your voice beside me, and you’ll take me home.
Happy anniversary to my beautiful Solveig.
