    So often troubles running through my mind
    So often I find you there
    So unprepared for this struggle I face
    This anguish I’m forced to bear
    The more that time keeps passing by
    The greater my hearts despair
    Making nightmares out of my dreams
    Creating wounds I can’t repair

    When I say I am missing you
    It means missing half my life
    Missing the blessing god gave me
    That day you became my wife
    Missing you like missing my sunshine
    Like my daytime missing its light
    Missing you being so close to me
    When I make it to bed each night

    So many things I want to tell you
    Things I never got to say
    Feelings of how much I need you…
    Overwhelm my mind each day
    Still clinging to hopes I’ll find you
    Hopes I won’t let get away
    Still no answers as to what happened
    Still, every single day I pray

    Remembering when we had forever
    Now, forever will never be
    Instead there’s anxiety growing
    Burning at its highest degree
    Along with sorrow & despair
    And a future that is hard to see
    Asking God for some kind of answer
    Wondering if he hears my plea


    I dedicate this expression to my to my wife Ali Gilmore
    who some may recall disappeared and is on the National Missing Persons
    list. It's been 2 years and 7 months, there as been very little progress
    in the investigation, and I am still missing her badly.
