Widow's Tears of Sorrow
This companion book to "Widow’s Walk" contains all the poems I wrote from the first day–when I found my husband of 42 years dead in his chair–to almost three years later. There are 45 poems in total–42 to equal one for each year we were married and 3 poems for my mother, who died the day after my husband. These are not happy poems; they are not poems about light and flowers and little kittens. These poems are hard, they are gritty, and they are real. My hope is that these poems touch your heart, and let you know that you are not alone, that at some point we all go through this in our lives, and while our grieving is personal to each of us, we all are in this together. Take my hand once again, and let us continue on our journey. With love, Paula Baysinger Morhardt
About Paula Morhardt (Other Author)
Paula Baysinger was born (as was her favorite author) on April 1st.
Writing from the time she could hold a pencil, Paula was never brave enough to submit a book for publication until the unexpected death of her husband, LaVerne Morhardt, in 2017. The loss of her mother the next day was the impetus to start writing every day, blogging about her journey as a new widow.
Paula’s first book, Widow’s Walk: How My World Ended And What Happened After, was published in 2018 by Amazon Press. Paula has not stopped writing since.
Days of Daze and Night Maze will be published in late 2020 by Fox Pointe Publishing and is a collection of poems written over the years.
Paula lives in the Midwest with her gardens and her rescue cats, and is visited regularly by her five grandchildren.
