    I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought of you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, and often speak your name. All I have are memories, and your picture in a frame. Your memories are a keepsake, for which I’ll never part. God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart.
