Living My Life For You

19th October, 2011
This was the day
You died

I still remember
And can still see
That dark night
And heavy rain

As I was told
It was like my heart had broken
My world was falling apart
I cried sore

I had lost you
And I felt numb
Your voice, your laugh, your face
Was all gone

Now I just have memories
The good and the bad
But each day with you
Was a blessing in disguise

As life has went on
I will never forget you
But think to myself
You'd want me to move on

And do the things we talked about
Before your sudden death
It's just a pity
I cannot hear you now

But I will keep going
Though it is hard
I will live my life
Cause I know that's what you'd want.

How beautiful!

Thank you for sharing that wonderful poem. I lost my precious son, David, 28, over 4 years ago. He had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, then joined the Army Reserves. He was home on leave when an unlicensed repeat DUI offender, in a commercial truck hit him head-on. It's been hell! But I keep living just to keep alive his legacy of love and service to others. You will never get over it, no matter what anyone tells you. I still have days that I cry just as hard as I did the day I lost him. God bless you.
