Song For A Lost Loved One - Poem by david lessard

I cannot and I will not, say that you are dead -
because you live and breathe inside my head,
because you were my love and always will be,
because you were a part of me.

I cannot and I will not, say that you are gone -
when your still with me in each and every song,
when your still in my heart all day long.

You went somehwere that I will one day go.
a place reserved for loved ones dear -
but in my mind you'll never go away,
you'll always be at my side and near.

I will share your soul with mine,
and what dreams that I can find -
I'll take them to my soul to keep,
and never more will you see me weep.

Tears are shed for them that's dead,
But your alive, inside my head -
and I'll not cry, I've cried enough,
though times be hard and rough.

Some day, we sit and laugh together,
like the man and son that we once shared -
we'll have our arms around each other,
for all the earthly years we lost, but always cared.
