TITLE: Poems To Mary Helen SUBTITLE: AUTHOR NAME: Richard Eggenberger (Narad) **How it's to be seen on cover** DIMENSIONS: 6" x 9" BOOK SUBJECT MATTER: To all who have lost their loved ones from cancer, for they have witnessed the great war within the body, the pain and progress of the disease, the heroic aspiration of the beloved wife, child, parent or relative to survive and have often suffered at their side through endless rounds of chemotherapy, for some the draining of ascites, for others the alternative therapies that promised a total cure and, at the end, some have faced a life alone with only memories of the loved one as sustenance. And to all who loved Mary Helen and saw in her an example of how one should live one's life, with grace and dignity, kindness and compassion and love for all, working for earth’s golden destiny. This is not a book meant only to express sorrow and loss however, but for recalling beauty and delight, the inner journey of two souls united in aspiration and the great and divine gift that brought them together. It is hoped that some of these poems may bring solace to the bereaved, for in the end, at least for this author, there is only humility and gratitude for the blessed gift of the Divine who united two souls in love and joy to participate in the adventure of consciousness on earth. BIO: This is a story told through poetry of one who lost his beloved to cancer; of the heart's grief, the seemingly inconsolable sorrow and the eventual healing and solace through the Divine Grace. It could be the story of all who have faced cancer in a child, wife, sibling, parent or friend and their attempt to lessen its ravages through every possible method of healing and in the end, having to bear the weight of sorrow on the soul - but for some also, through faith, a measure of peace, humility and gratitude for the blessing of the presence of the loved one in their life. Will be attaching an author picture. *********************************************************************************** There is a picture that is attached to this brief of the author's wife, he has wants the picture to be on the cover. This is a book of poems to help ease the passing of a loved one, to anyone that has experienced loss of a great deal. Try to design a cover that incorporates the picture of the woman on the front cover to be in a scene not just a picture on the cover with a texture. The males picture is of the author for the back cover. Needs to be put in a POSITIVE tone and expresses hope. The picture itself is low res which is a problem that will soon be fixed so just use it for colors and placement for now, we are not worried about pixelation at this point.
