Time is deceptive
It’s been a year since you transitioned
The pain is as heavy today as it was a year ago
God knows I would give anything to see you again
I didn’t think I was going to survive a second of any of this
Prayers have kept me together
The kids keep me going and
Gods Grace and Mercy have carried me this far
As today makes a year
I stand strong because of you
Because I know you wouldn’t have it any other way
Because I recall every late night conversation we had about resilience and fear
Because you were my greatest teacher and because you are still with us, in spirit
every breath i take
I honor you
I carry this pain with purpose
I promise I will make you proud
I promise to apply everything you taught me
In life and in death
There will never be another
Until we are together again….
I love you beyond human understanding ( but you know that already)🏁
