I thought of you today my dear, just the same as any other.
A hole in the shape of you was still painful to discover.
Today the taste of your absence was sharper and harder to swallow.
As everyone came in, I expected you to follow.
I could see the pride in your face that would be there if you were.
I could feel your happiness, as tears made my vision blur.
I could almost hear your laughter through all the background noise.
I could see your eyes shine brightly before reality destroys.
Such a happy and beautiful day that would have meant the world to you.
You weren’t there to share it with us and there’s nothing we could do.
Although it was bittersweet, we thought of you today.
Happy tears and sad, could not be kept at bay.
And as you could not be there, we enjoyed on your behalf,
A day you would have loved, to see us smile and hear us laugh.
