A Poem Written For Me

My wonderful friend Jolene wrote this poem and sent it to me.

When I cry

Itʼs not just from the sadness
Of all that will be gone
But also itʼs from knowing
What will never come

The future is forever changed
Thereʼs nothing we can do
Days and weeks and months will pass
I'll be there without you

Eventually routines will come
To busy up my time
Believe me when I say
You will always be on my mind

Without you by my side
I find the days are bleak
Even when the sun does shine
Tears spill down my cheek

I have to learn all over again
How to smile
How to breathe
How to live

I have to find a way to continue
When I wish that my life would end
I grieve the memories that will never be made
And I pray that my heart will mend.

This is beautiful and surely from the heart of someone who knows you close. I am praying for you as you go forward with all that is ahead. May God give you His peace and comfort. Again, I am so sorry.

Jo, it is as if you tapped into Ter's soul when you were writing it.
