I could not speak the day you passed away, but deep inside my heart I knew you couldn’t stay.
There was a calling for you, and for this I can’t be blue.
Yet here I sit thinking of the things we used to do.
You may have gone to a higher place, of which I know you will fill with grace.
You may have gone and left me here, alone and sad, but it really isn’t all that bad.
A better place is where you are, and you’re watching me from afar.
What we shared was magic, a love like nothing else, yet still tragic.
You will always be in my heart, forever to stay and never apart.
I will love you always, it will never falter.
But know even though you’re not with me it grows even stronger.
I just wish my time with you had been so much longer…
