Your ears have never heard me call your name. My face has never felt the touch of your hand, but you are forever in my heart. I can only imagine what might have been with you in my life. Would we have played ball, or gone fishing? Would we just sit and watch the stars? These things I will never know because God reaps in the fields he has sown. For now I will thank you for your sacrifice, honor your memory, miss you like crazy, and wait until we meet in Heaven.
