Strong enough

There were days when I needed you, more than ever before... i looked for you, opened every door. I tried to find you in every shadow of each dark room, looked for you behind every tree and plant in bloom. If i could carry a letter on the wings of a butterfly or on the back of a bird, would you read aloud my ever so hurtfilled word. My note written with tears that I've cried, oh how a part of me is missing even more now that you've died. The clouds up in heaven where you now lay your head, overlooking us with every tear you've shed. Lighting a path for us each one by one, oh the glorious things you'd see us over come. I smile now with thoughts of you, and how much your love was forever true. You joined up in heaven with loved ones whom too have passed, to rejoice in his kingdom having a blast. I look for you in every star in the sky, each twinkle gets brighter as though you're saying "hi". Thank you for the memories and loving me so, and teaching me to be strong enough to let you go
