Although You’re Gone

Although you’re gone, I’m not alone,

And never shall I be,

For the precious memories of the bond we shared

Will never part from me.

Our love surpassed the ups and downs

And helped us along the way,

And that same love will give me strength

To manage this loss each day.

On my mind and in my heart,

You shall forever be,

For just as much as I am a part of you,

You are a part of me!

I Love You Always,

Stanley
