Radio listeners were likely brought to tears when they tuned in to BBC’s 5 Live Breakfast program Monday to hear 93-year-old Bob Lowe share a touching poem he penned for his late wife Kath, who died three years ago from Alzheimer’s disease.
The couple were married over 60 years, and in his heartbreaking poem, he reminisces on their times together then — and his loneliness now. The poem, called “Ode To Kath,” is below:
“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

I am a single woman, so I will never experience that loss. In a way, I am fortunate to not have to go through that. However, I have never had experience deep, long-term partnership. And I am sorry to have missed that.
