FIVE YEARS
By: Amy M. Kennedy
-This poem is dedicated to my Mom, Linda Ann Kennedy who passed away in 1994. Mom, God bless you! I love you!

Five years has gone by, time sure flies by
Never for a minute did I think I'd have to say goodbye
Through the last five years so much has changed
People have, situations have, but my love for you has not
You gave me my foundation, my very life as I know it
I would be nothing without you
Everyday I try to live my life as though you are still here
I feel your presence wherever I go
I can not see you or hear you
But I can talk to you, and I know that you hear my voice
When I see a falling star, thats you winking at me
When I hear the wind that is you sighing
When I look outside and see nothing but blue sky
I know that you never left my side
And while I know all of those things, still oh how I miss you
I miss your smile, the warmth of your hand, your hugs
I miss how you use to tell me "never give up"
I just want to take the time to tell you two very important things
I love you, and thank you
Thank you for being my Mom, my best friend
Thank you for showing me how good life can be
But above all, thank You for showing me what true love is
As I spread my wings and go out into the world
I hope to accomplish many things, to be my best
But the achievement I am most proud of
Is being your daughter
No matter where life takes me, no matter where I go
I will never forget you or the love you showed me
Ten years of sweet bliss, memories of the past
Forever wrapped in our hearts
One day, I too shall leave this Earth
And reunite with you in heaven
Until then I shall live as though you are still right here
For I know you watch my every move, and are with me everyday
Not physically, but in spirit, and for now that's enough for me
Five years...how the time has flown
Full of ups and downs, and all the things in between
But one thing remains consistent and will forever
My love for you



 ~Live today as though it were your last but prepare for tomorrow as though it were here~

 ...there are places inside all our souls...
that have never been touched...
there are places inside our hearts...
that need to be loved this much...
Janet Marie

*I miss you baby...
I love you, always.*
