My eyes filled up with tears as I heard the news.
It never occurred to me how much I could lose.
I find myself wishing that it wasn't real.
Every time I think about it, pain is all I can feel.
Tears fall from my eyes; I can barely see,
But my heart tells me that she'll always be with me.
I'm glad she feels no pain now; she lives in a perfect land.
I can still feel the soft touch on my shoulder of her loving hand.
The warmth of her body as she hugs me
I lie in bed and cry at night,
I stare at the ceiling blankly, tears falling
And I don't feel any better in the morning light.
I will love and miss her forever,
Until the day we are again together.
Together in that perfect place above,
Filled with caring, sharing, and love,
But until that day comes--I will wipe my tears away
And hope to see her again someday.
I will remember the laughs we had
I will remember the times we shared
I will remember the tears we both shed
I will remember all of these my smile as slick as a piece of thread
I have not accepted that you are really dead,
I keep telling myself you are simply asleep in your bed
I survived exam week, only one person I wish I could tell
My best friend who also happens to be family
I want to hear her voice say “ YOU DID IT YAYYY!!!”
And ensure myself our memories Will forever stay
In my head, in pictures and memories placed on paper.
You are not gone, you are just taking a break
The illness got the best of you.
DAMN THAT ILLNESS
You are so much stronger
Your heart is so much kinder
You were given a curfew to go home
But not in earthly time.
A curfew to go home, not with your family , with your father
A curfew to go home, forever.
A seat next to your eternal father
And while you will stay in our hearts forever
Though we may grieve
You are with God, how it was always meant to be,
My sweet Emma while I do grieve,
Show me that you are still here
Watching over me
Again I will see.
