I’m sorry for your loss. It sounds like you are feeling sad and lost after the passing of your wife. It is normal to feel this way after the loss of a loved one, and I want to acknowledge your strength in reaching out on the forums.
I’m wondering if it will be helpful to engage in rituals that will allow you to remember your wife, while accepting that she has passed away. https://griefline.org.au/resources/understanding-the-symptoms-of-grief/#Continue_the_Bond_with_your_loved_one_while_coming_to_accept_that_they_have_gone provides some suggestions that you might want to try when you are ready to do so.
I also want to remind you that you are not alone. Other users here, such as @bereavedwife, @jamie62, @homer and @starman have shared similar stories, and reading their posts might be helpful.
