I know I am still with you

In your prayers, your thoughts, your heart

And though you cannot see me, I will always be a part

Of life’s sweet celebrations

In those times when you reflect on how, though things are different,

Through our love, we still connect.

We’ll see each other someday when our spirits all are free,

Until then, I am with you because you remember me.
