I thought of you today,
but that is nothing new.

I thought of you yesterday
and the days before that too.

I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.

All I have are memories and
your picture in a frame.

Your memory is a keepsake
from which I’ll never part.

God has you in His arms,
I have you in my heart.

After all these years, I still miss you so much my love. Rest
In Peace
