My darling girl
You've been gone one year.
I long to touch that gorgeous coat you were so proud to wear.
One year I've survived without you
despite my urge to check out.
I do survive, because you would want me to.
You are my inspiration,
my spirit within.
I've done more than survive this year,
I've lived it.
I miss you so much,
I carry you with me everywhere I go.
I live in the moment as much as possible.
I don't worry about what will come tomorrow
because I have today to celebrate
the way you always did
with that grinning smile
and shining eyes.
And when the storms come sweeping in
stealing away late afternoons and early evenings,
I remember how nothing can hurt us.
Not lightning, not thunder,
not Lyme disease, not high triglycerides,
not cancer, not death.
We are too pure for that
and we dance on the energy of love
where we will be until we reach the circle's end
and you come back to me again.
