I do



I stand and stare

at your picture in the hallway,

wondering where you are.

Are you here? Still in my Heart?

Do you know how much,

how very much I miss you?

I do.


Do you know that every day

a little more of you slips away

and a little more comes to

the surface? Will you fade away?

Do you know how much,

how very much I need you?

I do


Can you see into my heart?

See that I can share my love,

without diminishing my love for you?

I do.


Will I live again, love again?

In the same way, but different

than the way I love you?

Do you know how much,

how very much you gave me?

I do.
