It is four years since you left us.
It seems like forty years or fourteen minutes.
We miss you every minute of every day.
You are never absent from our thoughts and daydreams,
but you are always absent from our touch.
We were told “it would get easier,” but it hasn’t.
Every holiday, each and every day our hearts hurt.
Loving you, missing you, respecting you
Listening attentively for your signs,
Assures us of your presence
We are your hands
Bringing light to the earth
As you carry our love
Dad and Mom
