time passes, never healing, only dulling
the sharpness of the knifelike pain
shards left of a life that once stood tall
they say you forget the sound of a voice
when it has been silenced forever by death
but i have not forgotten, will never forget
the joyful softness of your word melodies
the way your laugh could light my world

ten years after and in my mind i still
hear you call my name in that special way
that caused my heart to skip a beat
i don’t need a picture to remember
delicate beauty of your face and form
don’t need a physical touch to recall
how your fingers tenderly traced my face
the ecstasy we shared in the night lives on

i can still smell the scent of your perfume
and taste the sweetness of your ripe lips
the date comes and goes every september
tributes are penned, ceremonies planned
once a year the whole country grieves
all year i remember and i pen tributes
to you within my heart every passing day
history is very personal to you and to me

Oh Dear Heart,
You are such a loving passionate man. I wish for your pain to leave, so that you can be whole once more. We do all grieve for all people that lost their lives, but when it is so personal it really is so difficult to get on with this. This is a beautiful tribute to that amazing woman that you have lost. I love your spirit, and your tender heart, DJ.

One day you will be able to move on beyond this pain. Keep writing, I have missed you so much.

Much peace, love and light,
