a poem.



It’s been one year since you’ve been gone

A year of pain, but I’ve been strong

Just like you taught me

I learned that from you

No matter what happens, keep pushing through

So that’s what I’m doing

I wish you were here to see

I’m working to do what I love

To follow my dreams

Just like you taught me

I love you.

I miss you.

    1. That had to have been so hard for you, Valerie. Through it all, I am so happy to hear you’ve come out even stronger. I’m on my way there too. Thank you for your kind words!
