Happiness within Sadness
My fears are realized.
You are no longer here.
I feel sadness well up within me,
Whenever I hear of something you loved.
Loneliness chains my soul down,
For your smile can no longer support me.
I know, though, that you are still with me.
Your new home is in my heart and my mind.
It will be hard with you not being here to watch me find happiness or not seeing you meet your grandchildren,
But you shall live on through me.
You have guided me and protected me,
And now I must carry on without you.
I wish to thank you for all the happiness you have granted me and the guidance you have given me to prepare for the future.
I love you Mom. Rest in peace.
