A Gift from You to Me

I think of you often and tears began to flow

I realize now this is how it is meant to be,

a gift from you to me

He said it was ok I ask him everyday

His voice was Mighty and strong far sure

I knew not how to feel

The thought of you leaving this world for my sake,

was so overwhelming and real

A gift from you to me and my new life begins

My skies are again blue

Solely because of this gift from you

I think of you often most certainly every day.

My blessing is everlasting

never to fade away

How do I ever repay this gift a gift from you to me

My thoughts and prayers will always be with you,

As you will now always be a beautiful part of me
