|Let the memory of Michael Andrew be with us forever|
"You are absent.
An empty space.
Yet you fill my soul.
You are silent,
But I hear you.
My voice does not touch you.
There is nothing.
There is always nothing.
Always, always, you recede through the space.
Until twilight interrupts your silence.
I journey blindly through the night,
Stumbling through a wooded path,
And chase your moonlit shadow.
A familiar drifting fragrance,
climbs through my conscious mind.
A musky scent.
A broad, dark twig,
in a pine forest of whispering roots,
marks your bed.
And leads me to your secret place.
Hidden by the earth,
I imagine you lay there by the tree.
A grand, polished rock with your name.
Words carved in stillness.
Pictures and poems decorate your lair.
Messages in a bottle.
Treasures that whisper love.
Words that hang on.
Echoes of tears and laughter,
Sing gently through the trees.
A toast to the heart we left behind.
An awareness pours into a perpetual cup.
I remember you.
I must remember you.
You must never be forgotten.
A piece of sun that occupies my mind.
A morning smile.
You are missed!
"Only you could make us feel
You’re with us every day,
Only you could make us feel,
Your love is here to stay.
A soul that shines so brightly
And fills our hearts with love
And in return please let us say,
You’re all we ever dream of.
Only you could make us smile
While our hearts feel so much pain,
You’re at our side, and in our hearts,
Together once again."
"If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane, I’d walk
right up to heaven and bring you
Have a suggestion for us?
