Even though you’re no longer here,
Your memory grows stronger with each passing year.

The end came as an unknown battle,
complete with the utmost emotional shackle.

With little choice but to give in,
your beautiful heart could never win.

With no goodbye before you left,
I’d have told you, you’re my hero and the best.

The happiness you gave, brings tears to my eyes,
Though its lives with me – through the threads of our lives.

For all the walks I take by the sea,
I will always throw a pebble in for you and me.

So many tears before I sleep,
Wishing you beside me, you’d be forever here to keep.

Wishing I could see you just one more time,
I’d shout your name out aloud.

The years don’t get easier; they said the pain would go,
I guess I’ve just learnt how to let my feelings show.

So with your giant rainbow up in the clouds,
I just hope I can make you proud.

Hoping the years will start to soften and just maybe then…
your birthday could feel happy once again.
