A year ago


A year ago you left us,
A year ago you died.
No longer are you here with us,
Sitting by our side.

We miss the tricks you played on us,
The smiles you gave us, too.
We miss the laughter and the jokes,
The person that was you.

Our lives are not the same these days
Because you are not here.
The empty void that’s in our lives
Will be forever near.

But you will live for always
In our minds and in our heart
On each and every day
That we are forced to be apart.
