Itís so hard to believe that nine months have passed.
I remember so clearly the day that was to be your last.
I didnít want to think about it, but I knew your time was near.
I wasnít ready to let you go, for I loved you so much, dear.
They said I should have no regrets; thatís easier said than done.
ďI wish that I had spent more time with you,Ē would be my first one.
I told you how much I loved you many times each day.
And I always kissed you whenever I had to go away.
We were married for twenty-six and one half years.
And I remember all the good times we had, amid my tears.
I wonít say our life was perfect; that would be a lie.
Can I go on without you? I guess Iíll have to try.
The one thing that has helped me more than I can say,
Is knowing that God and you are with me everyday.
I can feel the presence of both of you very near to me.
It really does help me, although your face I cannot see.
Sometimes I talk to you as though you were right here.
And if I listen carefully, your voice I may just hear.
I have made it this far and with Godís help I can go on.
He can help me overcome and make my body strong.
I know Iíll never forget you; God wouldnít want me to.
Youíll always have a place in my heart, no matter what I do.
