A chapter in the book Love Parts3

I'll Make You Proud

by Barb Hensongispsaca

Memorial Poems Contest Winner 
I feel your peaceful spirit,
I feel your total love,
I feel that you're beside me
from somewhere up above.

'Though you are gone from my sight,
I still feel that you're there.
The memories of you, dear,
impossible to bare.

A chunk of my existence
has been torn from my soul;
my life now sadly fractured
will never be made whole.

The sun's no longer shining
'though I feel heat today;
my laughter has gone with you
'for I'm the one who'll stay.

A part of me is missing
and will forever be,
but I still feel your presence
as you watch over me.

I'll hold you close within me -
so deep within my heart ...
I don't know how to live now,
just know I have to start.

I want you here beside me,
but that is not allowed;
I promise I will go on
and I'll make you so proud.
