About the Author

Sally Harmon lost her husband of 33 years when he accidentally fell from a ladder on an ordinary Saturday morning.  Remembering their life together and recognizing the wonderful gift she had for so long has helped her cope with her grief and enabled her to face the reality of this loss.  This is a love story of a grieving partner left behind to face life on her own with new hope and purpose.


When you read these poems, you take her journey from despair to a sense of peacefulness and strength.  You feel her sadness, her love and her pain.  You also feel the moments of joy as she realizes that life truly must continue and you feel her heart as it begins to mend giving in to the past so she can look to the future. You remember with her and although she was not ready, she begins to smile again.
