Part of Me...

Part of Me...
I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.

I thought about you yesterday and the day before that too.
I think of you in silence. I often say your name.

But all I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which I'll never part.
God has you in His keeping. I have you in my heart.
I shed tears for what might have been. A million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly. In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place, no one can ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn't go alone.
For part of me went with you, the day God took you home.

This is great. Working on my blog yesterday, adding a photo of Landon on the side. I sat and cried for I miss him soo much. The days go by, even a whole year and to look back at those pics, it feels like a whole life time ago. So surreal.....still.
He always know when to let me know he is near.... I saw 4 hawks on my way home today! I am sure he and Marie are playing games!
Love you!

I agree. Megan was part of me. I can physically feel that empty place inside right now. Thank you for posting this poem.
