I Live On

We lost a dear friend this week. So this post is dedicated to him and his family…we grieve with you.

” I  Live  On “

Don’t cry for me in sadness; don’t weep for me in sorrow,

For I will be beside you, as sure as comes tomorrow.

My body has gone but my spirit lives on, as does my love for you.

Just as in life. I’ll watch over you, I always will be true.

My blood lives on in my children, how I’ve watched them grow up with pride.

I’ll live on within them, always by their side.

I know my jokes weren’t always funny and jobs weren’t always done.

Just try and always remember the good times, the days when we had fun.

Reach out if you need me, for I will always be near.

Just talk to me, as if I am there, I promise I will hear.

For I’ll live on, with in your mind, we’ll never be apart,

As long as you keep my memory, deep within your heart.

So lift up your hearts, don’t be sad, my spirit hasn’t gone.

While you’re still there, so am I, I really will live on.

    • Thanks so much, Gp. It’s almost like losing my dad all over again. The man was SO much like my dad and I am glad he knew how I felt about him.
