I remember your smile
I remember the life found in your eyes.
I remember that summer before you passed
and how I would fall on my skates because I was moving too fast.
I remember the life lessons and golden nuggets you taught
and how in mid-sentence you would always lose your train of thought.
I remember the songs that we would sing
and all the joy that it would bring
I remember that goofy laugh that would always follow,
losing you was a hard pill to swallow
I remember being alone in my room when I found out
my mind filled with such doubt
There was no way that my favorite aunt could have been gone
The one who was like a mother to me, the one who said she would never leave me she had sworn!
I remember the love you gave that I tried to recreate
But no one could ever take your place
In me your love lives on
I'll always remember that you taught me to be strong
When things get tough or just seem to go wrong
I will remember that in my heart you live on!
