No one will ever know
the pain within my heart,
the tears that I still shed for you
since we were torn apart.
Your memory still lives on each day
in the many hearts of friends,
but three lost souls will miss you
until their journeys end.
This year will be our fifth one now
without you by our side,
the tears will fall and our hearts will break
as sure as the ever flowing tide.
Your fishing pole and tackle box
still sit there by the door,
another sad reminder
of what our life was like before.
For our home was filled with laughter
a love so kind and rare,
your presence filled each room with joy
your infectious smile we shared.
But God had other plans for you
and for us you left too soon,
so I gaze up at the stars alone
and wish upon the moon.
I send my prayers to another world
of great spirits and ancestors alike,
that you will always watch over us
each and every night.
Eventually, the time will come
when we'll no longer be apart,
but until that day I'll think of you
and keep you safe within my heart.
