To the Editor: 

My wife Christine of 60 years passed away on May 20 of this year. Our oldest daughter Christina wrote the following poem in her memory.

It Comes in Waves

I see you sleeping

comfortably at rest

You look so peaceful


But it comes in Waves

You start getting restless

Anxious and in pain

I tried to remind myself

That it comes in waves

For soon you will rest again


What your body will allow

But it’s only temporary

Because it comes in waves

I didn’t cry this morning

Knowing you were resting

Trying to stay positive


But it comes in waves

The time has come

You are eternally at rest

And now the memories

Are coming in waves

Christina Anderson
