I weep for you every day;
My eyes with grief are swollen.
I yearn to change the heavy truth upon me that has fallen.
Some say time can ease my pain;
Some say time will bring me peace.
My heartbreak belies the promise, though, of any such release.
Your joyful soul to me endeared you;
Much good humor and laughter you shared.
And I am a better person, because for you I cared.
Cherished memories of your good life;
Keep pace with my sense of loss so deep.
Our time in life may be past, but your spirit forever I keep.
