This month its over two years now since Gary passed. I try to tell in the poem of the pain we feel and how we the miss and long to see Gary. Also how time although its helps so much it never can give you what you wish for most of all. I use words like my and I but they mean all of us who know and loved Gary. Yes I know I am no poet but it doesn't stop me trying Gary will understand.
The Poetry I sometimes write
Words just written to ease my plight
I sit to remember your smiling face
The world I know so hard to embrace
I hear those words " You'll heal with time "
But its not them that leaves you behind.
I know to survive I must let go
But not just yet I shall be slow
I can see the race I must win
But yes that training never did begin
The baby books so full of advice
It never did say you could die
There's that word which causes me to stumble
Rarely spoken always mumbled.
Another day over, I did not cry
Except silent tears I could not dry
So goodnight my love till tomorrow again
I take up that fight that I must win.
To Gary Love From Mom, Dad , Stephen , and Lisa
