I’ve been thinking about you today
About the loss that came your way
About the strength you show
And the love that flows
Despite the pain of moving on

I realized just by chance
That you have given me a gift
A sense of how it is
To lose yet walk anew–
And that new found strength
In your stride,
That confidence in life,
Comes from things anchored
So in a faith
That truth to know we can all overcome,
Not just the grave, but the little
Pricks that life inflicts.

Today, I am happy to know you,
I am lucky to know you,
To watch you teach me
how it is to accept, to move on,
to love fiercely without fear.

We may never pass this way again, but we are here together today.
