    I remember everything about you, your voice, your smile, your touch, the way you walked, the way you talked, the way you looked, meant so much.

    I remember all the words you said to me, some funny, some kind, some wise, all of the things you did for me, now I see with different eyes.

    I remember every moment we shared, seems like only yesterday,
    or maybe it was eons ago, it’s really hard to say.

    You are gone from me now, but one thing they can’t take away,
    your memory resides inside my heart, and lights up my darkest days.

    Rest in paradise!
