I dream of you and your Sunday smile
because I haven’t seen it in awhile.
I miss that funny way you laughed so loud
and how your family made you so proud.
It has been so many years since that day
when the ambulance took my heart away.
I know I shouldn’t miss you anymore
but I still picture your face at the door.
I see you in the morning and I see you at night –
It’s like everywhere I go you are in my sight.
When they said that your memory lives on,
they weren’t wrong: I just wish you were here all along.
Rest with the heavenly angels my love,
I guess it’s nice to know you’re up above
us and watching us each and every day,
although we never did plan it that way.
Dedicating day 26 to all of my friends at RHV.
