I Remember

(for Daniel on his birthday)

The pictures remind me of the times that we had.

I smile at the happy and cry at the sad.

I see how you looked some years ago –

And I remember the sun, the sea and the snow.

I remember the laughing and all of the fun –

The times we were two before I was one.

I think of the things that you used to say,

In support, in comfort, in jest and in play.

I think of your smile and blue eyes above.

I remember it all, especially your love.

A whole year my darling almost to the day –

I’m still here without you although with dismay.

I’m carrying on as the time passes by

And every day I continue to try.
