To me, you will never be gone.

Not completely, not forever.

It's as they said,

You'll always be here

As long as we think of you

And remember the good times.

Today we were talking about you,

Where we where when we heard the news,

How we paused for a minute

Because we couldn't believe,

Then sank to the floor

And cried until all that was left

Was the pain of your loss.

Then we recalled the ways

You changed our lives

With the small things,

And, with those actions,

Turned us around and saved us.

And I'm sorry

That we will never get the chance

To thank you

For all the things you did for us

That we took for granted

Because we never thought

You would do this.
