I am reminded all the time that you are gone.
Your special day so close to mine.
With sadness I age without you
but believe that I think of you.
I think of you all the time
and that will never change.
I get tears that suddenly
strike for what seems
to be no reason at all.
There are moments
that it hits me more than others.
I cannot get rid of the guilt.
I could have been a better son.
You deserved that.
You always took me for me
even when I made you worry.
I do think of what you would have thought
even all these years after your passing.
This year is no different than any other.
I miss you just as much.
