For Jake…………………


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…
