Although there are times I feel I will drown in my tears,

I still breathe.

Although there are nights I lie awake, missing you,

I still sleep.

Although I feel that part of my heart is gone,

It still beats.

Although there are days when the pain of losing you seems overwhelming,

I know you are near.

Although I am changed forever,

I can still move forward.

Although there is no laughter like yours,

Your voice is still in my ears.

Although I measure my days without you in them,

I had more days with you than without you.

Although I call your name,

I know that somewhere you answer.

Although I know that grief is now my constant companion,

There is still room in my soul for joy and laughter.

Although I am missing all that was you,

I know that we will be together again.
