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.
