Leesburg, FL USA
My heart hangs heavy with a sorrow
That will not fade even with a million tomorrows.
I talk to you and know you hear
Even though you're no longer here.
We had a bond - you and I.
Now with love I look up at the sky.
I know some how, way up there
You smile down as you watch me stare.
I wonder why you're no longer near,
I have not the words of wisdom I wish to hear.
Too soon it seems you were taken away.
I know your life you lived to the fullest each day.
I know you loved me, it was in your touch.
I don't remember if I told you, but I love you this much.
I was so young when God called you home.
I can remember the dream where you told me to roam.
Twas that night I said good bye
The night six years after you'd died, it was the last time I let myself cry.
I love you and miss you so,
This I just wanted you to know.
I wrote this for my grandfather...he died many years ago...but this is the first time I've been able to put my sorrow down in black and white. It took me a long time to say good bye...for a long time I could not think of him without crying...I thank him for helping me to finally say good bye one night in a strange yet calming dream.
We are only truly apperciated after we are no more!
