It doesn’t seem possible, it is so hard to imagine, completely unfathomable that I have not seen your face, heard your voice, felt your touch in a year. This is what the calendar tells me. I look all around me and see all the signs of springtime that were all around when you passed and I know it is true. The Students have graduated from the University this past weekend the parties and picnics that we attended last year together have taken place without us, because you are gone. It feels like only yesterday you whispered to me “I love you” and I whispered back “I love you too.” Now those are memories that I will treasure forever.
Photographs and memories is a line from and old poem or song I can’t quite remember now but that is what I am left with a year later. Wonderful memories of a romance that was like no other. A romance that defied the odds and succeeded when some thought we were two different to succeed. A romance I never dreamed that I would experience. We learned to dance together you and I and we didn’t just dance on the dance floor but we danced through life.
I pray that you are dancing in heaven and singing with the heavenly choir. I pray that you are free and joyous and light and at one with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I pray that you are free from worry and pain and struggle and strife. I pray you are home.
You have gone but you will never be forgotten
You have gone on to be with God
Go and dance a heavenly dance
Go and sing in the heavenly choir
I will remember your voice, your laugh, your face, your hair
I will remember your serious look, your smile, your eyes, your lips
I will remember your silly notes, your lists, your hands, your touch
You will forever be my dancing partner, and while we only danced one dance
oh what a dance it was
Because we made our life our dance my sweetheart,
I have no regrets,
I wouldn’t change a day, an hour, a minute, a moment
A year I have been without you,
I have not lived, I have only existed
I can’t promise to go forth and live from this moment
But I can promise to try
So sing with the angels my love
Dance to the heavenly tunes above
I can’t promise you I will live from this moment, but
To dance, I will try
To dance , I will tryby
