I Don’t Need A Special Day
I don’t need a special day
to bring you to mind
the days I do not think of you
are very hard to find.

Each morning when I awake
I know that you are gone
and no one knows the heartache
as I try to carry on.

My heart still aches with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know.

My thoughts are always with you,
Your places no one can fill.
In life, I loved you dearly,
In death, I love you still.

Letter from Heaven
When tomorrow starts without me,
And I’m not here to see. 
If the sun should rise and find your eyes, filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry,
the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things
we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you,
and each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.

When tomorrow starts without me
Don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I’m right there in your heart.
