Your smile could light up a city,
And your laughter could end a war.

Your heart was as big as the moon,
And your love was as strong as “forever”.

Your memories will never be forgotten,
And our sorrow will never fade.

A day without you seems like forever,
And forever seems so far away.

Not a second goes by that I don’t miss you,
And not a day goes by that I don’t cry.

I know you’re watching over me,
And I know you’ll stay by my side.

The hardest part is to know that you’re gone,
And the worst part is to know you’re not coming back.

Sometimes I think the could block the sunshine,
But I know you’re always there.

The author's comments:
When I was growing up, my mom was not around, so my dad and his best friend Donny raised us six kids. I called both of them "Dad". I never talked to anyone about my feeling or the situation with my mom unless it was Donny. He was the only person I could talk to about my feelings. He was my best friend. Two years ago, he had a heart attack in my dad's arms. I lost my Dad, my best friend, my therapist, and my body guard all in one. My life was turned upside down and I felt like I had no one. That day, I picked up a pen and paper and started to write, hoping some how he could help me from heaven. And he did, that day I wrote my first poem. Whenever I'm upset from now on, I write and I know he can hear me.
