    93-year-old widower writes moving poem to his late wife

    Bob Howe wrote a poem after losing his wife, and read it on radio to help raise the profile of a senior chairty.

    'Social media users praised Mr Howe as "inspirational", with many admitting they were overwhelmed with emotion after listening.

    The widower, a community champion for helpline The Silver Line, was appearing on the show following a report suggesting an increasing number of men were facing loneliness in later life.'

    Her is Mr Howe's poem, and you can also hear him read it at the link.

    I am alone, now I know itís true

    There was a time when we were two

    Those were the days when we would chat

    Doing little jobs of this and that

    Weíd go to the shops and select our meals

    But now Iím one I know how it feels

    To try and cook or have meals on wheels

    The rooms are empty thereís not a sound

    Sometimes Iím 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

    Thatís when I feel most forlorn

    But I must be honest and tell the truth

    Iím not quite alone and hereís 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

    Letís mix our ashes and be together

    So we can snuggle up for ever and ever.

    Ė Bob Lowe
