I can’t believe it’s been a year
Since you have gone away.
I swear that I was talking to you
Just the other day.
The tears are more sporadic now
I cry a little less,
But on the nights that seem the worst
They make me such a mess.
They say that things get easier,
But all I really feel
Is emptiness inside my heart
At every family meal.
I keep your picture in my purse
And room and office space,
So if I’m ever feeling down
I’m not far from your face.
It’s been a year, I can’t believe
That you have missed so much
Like weddings, graduations, and
A precious baby’s touch.
I hope you know I think of you
At different times each day,
And no matter where life takes me,
In my heart, you’ll always stay.
