Two months

Two whole months have passed.
How is that even possible?
I feel like he was just here, and then again, to us he is always here. Will is literally always on our minds...on our hearts.

So today, we trudge on...and I'm trying not to think about the future...when instead of counting the months and days, we will be counting the years without him.

A friend passed this poem onto me in an email. I don't know who the author is, but I'm grateful to have it. I don't think there will ever be a day when I can read it without crying.

Today I saw you crying
I sent you lots of love
I hope that you can feel it
I'm here just up above

Today I jumped from cloud to cloud
And flew across the sky
And God told me all about you
And why you often cry

He told me you were special
And your love for me so deep
He told me that one day I'll meet you here
And in your arms I'll leap

I met a nice man the other day
He sat me on his knee
He told me that he knew you, Mom
And do you know what else he told me?

He told me all about you
About your pretty face
About your kindness, love and joy
And about your sweet grace

I told that man I knew you
Cause we were once so close
I grew in your belly, Mommy
Just beneath your clothes

I told that man you talked to me
And prayed for me each night
And how I felt your love right there
and how you would hug me tight

No, your not a stranger, Mom
Although we're now apart
It's really not that far, Mommy
I know I'm in your heart

I can't wait to see you Mommy
God says you'll be here soon
Until then, I'm with you
And I love you to the moon

What tear-jerker! I hadn't read that before, but - wow! Thanks for sharing that.
