Itís hard to believe that it has been two years.
But whenever I close my eyes I can feel you near.
My life has changed since youíve been gone.
And slowly Iíve been able to carry on.
Not a day goes by that I donít think of you.
I know that my love for you will always be true.
I try not to dwell on my loss every day.
We will be together again some day.
Iím just thankful for all the years we had.
Iíll remember the good and forget the bad.
Iím glad I was able to be there till the end.
Whatever was happening on me you could depend.
Mom and Nick kept me busy; they forgot the date.
I didnít mention it for I have got to be okay.
Sometimes I feel sad and I begin to cry.
I probably wouldnít be able to tell someone why.
I just know that I miss you each and every day.
With help from friends and family Iíll get by some way.
I like to talk about good times and funny things you said.
I can laugh, which is better than crying instead.
Just remember I love you and always will dear.
So Iíll close my eyes and pretend that you are here.
Carol, your poem and thought were very beautiful. Sometimes we forget that our friends are still in pain long after they have lost someone they love. You are an extra-ordinary woman and I am so glad you my friend. You bless all of us whose lives you touch with your life and words.
