Remembering You



Your time on earth seemed all too brief

because I wanted you in my life forever.

And although I really miss you,

in my heart I know that you are at peace.

Still, countless times throughout the day

I find myself remembering you.

Although I cannot see or hear you,

I know that you are with me.

I'll feel you in the warmth of the summer sun.

I'll see you in the brilliance of the autumn leaves.

You'll be beside me in the peacefulness of a gentle snowfall

and rejoice with me in the emergence

of the first flowers of spring.

I'm thankful for the times we shared

and the priceless memories too;

for those memories are comfort now when I lovingly

remember you.
