Can’t remember your touch
Or your voice or times you came
Sometimes I just know you
Through a picture in a frame

I wish I knew you better
I‘d want to talk to you
But you seemed so far away
I didn’t know what to do

I can’t remember your games
Or the fun I did enjoy
Can’t remember your smile
By the sickness, it destroyed

But I know you love me
And you always will
And even though you’re gone now
Your love is always near

You were taken, oh, so sudden
Like a gunshot to the ear
I remember the day he told me
Filled with sorrow and some fear

You may have soared to heaven
Like a dove into the sky
Up to Lord, our God
All the way up high

And even though you’re not here
And you have gone away
Somehow you are still here
And watching me each day

That is sad. :( I like how honest you are in the beginning.  It's a good poem.
