    Three days, they
    surrounded with weeping eyes
    and sorrowful hearts
    acting, as if
    they empathize

    Three days...three days,
    full with concerned phone calls,
    condolences cards and
    encouraging words,
    "stay strong," they said,
    "she's in a better place" and,
    "you have an angel in Heaven now"

    who cares...

    I'd
    rather her here
    with me, thoughts run through
    my head

    Three days...three days...three days

    of sharing memories
    and
    promises of
    'gone but never forgotten'

    ...then poof
    like...
    houdini's magic,
    everyone was gone and
    life went on

    from my
    point of view
    I'm the only one
    missing you

    I
    dare
    they
    be
    joyous

    amidst, my hell on earth

    I
    watch
    through eyes
    that cry endless tears
    day and night and what seems
    like in between
    while they...
    live
    laugh
    and
    love

    No one
    can truly understand
    until someone soul-deep in their heart dies
    and rips their life apart

    I realize this, cause
    I didn't, until...

    I
    lived
    it.

    So quick
    The pain-filled years
    Have passed
    Horrors of final days…last
    In midnight's shallow dreams
    Nightmares
    …Of horrific things

    Endure…the pain

    Remember…

    She was your dream

    Listen to her …Sing.

    Mourn.

    As I read throughout the maze great tears comes
    the pain felt the times of sharing, the love lost
    the misery that last, sweet memories forever there
    I can relate ...if I only had another day

    within you she remain and will always be in spirit

    Her memory is as beautiful as she and her personality was and I'm blessed beyond measure to always have them with me,
