Since you left life has not been the same,
pain sits beside me and guides me through my day.
I try to brush him away with happy thoughts and memories of the "good" ole days,
But he sits silently deep within my heart.
He reminds me every moment of how much I miss you so.
The memories that flash are so bitter sweet because while I'm thankful for them, they hurt beyond belief.
I wonder why everyday, why you and not me?
Your life was just beginning and you had so much more to see.
This has to be a horrible mistake, a nightmare, please Lord help me wake!!
I scream these words over and over in my head but the outcome is always the same,
Your still gone and pain is all that remains.
Pain is my cross to carry the rest of my days.
So I will choose now this day, to do it in a way
that honors you and your precious memory.
To promise to live as you lived your little life; full of love and compassion to share,
a sense of adventure, and a wonderful listening ear.
To remember to stop and smell the roses and chase the butterflies through the air.
Most important on this list is to live my life knowing I will hold you in my arms.
That while pain says goodbye forever my soul screams until we meet again.....
