I Miss You
My Mind knows that you are in a better place
Where there is no pain. You are at peace.
I understand that, I just wish I could explain it to my heart.
There is an empty space in it that nothing will ever fill.
I grieve, but I know my tears are for me.
We will be together again. Until then, my love will always be with you.
