This 93-Year-Old Man's Poem for His Late Wife of 65 Years Will Break Your Heart


Go get yourself a tissue. You’re going to need it.

Bob Lowe
, a 93-year-old British vet who lives in Hampshire, U.K., lost his wife, Kath, three months ago. The two were married for over 65 years. On Monday, Bob read a poem he wrote for Kath on the BBC's Radio 5 live. It’s beautiful:

“Ode to Kath”

I am alone, now I know it’s true

There was a time when we were two

Those were the days when we would chat

Doing little jobs of this and that

We’d go to the shops and select our meals

But now I’m one I know how it feels

To try and cook or have meals on wheels

The rooms are empty there’s not a sound

Sometimes I’m lost and wander round

To look for jobs that I can do

To bring back the days when we were two

When darkness falls and curtains drawn

That’s when I feel most forlorn

But I must be honest and tell the truth

I’m not quite alone and here’s the proof

Because beside me in her chair

She quietly waits our time to share

Kath said to me some time ago

Darling when the time comes for us to go

Let’s mix our ashes and be together

So we can snuggle up forever and ever.

Bob appeared on Radio 5 live to promote The Silver Line, a hotline for older people suffering from loneliness. “My wife died three months ago after 65 years of marriage, but more to the point 72 years since we first kissed,” Bob says on The Silver Line’s website. “And she waited throughout the war for me and I for her...Loneliness, tell me about it.”
