There is so much I wish to say
I think about you every day
I miss your laugh
I miss your smile
Neither lost nor forgotten...
I imagine them often
It just doesnâ€™t seem real that youâ€™re not around
I still look for you when Iâ€™m in townâ€¦
Iâ€™ll never forget on the 30th of June...
As I sat on the curb, tears filled my eyesâ€¦.
I found myself looking for youâ€¦..
Until I realized what was true...
I will never again see your wave and your smile...
We wonâ€™t stand on the street and visit for a whileâ€¦
No â€œhow you doing Sisâ€ with a big hug to followâ€¦.
All of these things, I cherish so dearly â€¦
In my heart, I remember so clearlyâ€¦
I still talk to you ...
I know you can hear meâ€¦
Today I spoke of you and before I finished my sentenceâ€¦.
I could feel your presence...
Then .. a coincidence, or was it a sign?
The song that reminds me of you began to playâ€¦
As If you knew I was thinking of you this day...
I smiled.. feeling you were there with me â€¦
Again... I sat rememberingâ€¦
Tears filled my eyes as I listened to the song.
But this time I accepted that you are gone.
So many years later..
Seems like foreverâ€¦.
Iâ€™ve asked myself and Iâ€™ve talked to Godâ€¦..
How could he take you away for so long?
The only answer that makes any sense is â€¦.
Youâ€™re in Godâ€™s hands nowâ€¦
As he planned
Watching us from aboveâ€¦
An Angel in heaven who will always be loved.
I miss u with all my Heart
