Your voice will always be missed,
It will permanently be in my head
Your smile will never die,
It will always raise a warm memory in my heart
Your laughter will forever be infectious,
It always carried across the room
Your strength will always push me forward,
It will never drag me backwards
Your life will always be remembered,
You will never be forgotten…never.
------- Author's Notes -------
Since my father died I have not had any urge at all to write. Something came over me today and I just went with it.

It's been a long time my friend, but very good poem. It is always hard to get pass the loss of a loved one, but when we write about it, emotions seem to just flow easily and rapidly because of the pain we feel.
