A Year Ago Today

A year Ago Today

A year today she left us
Yet I see her every day
In passing words and fleeting smiles
And memories that always stay

A quick glance at a passing face
That looks so much like her
My heart stands still and so does time
I hear her voice so clear and sure

Some mornings we commiserate
Like we used to do daily on the phone
Agreeing to disagree on a few things
Sharing our love for each other alone

I feel her around me so often
Like she’s checking in on me
With her arms around my shoulder
Just like it used to be

She holds a special place in my heart
She left us way too soon
I know that our connection will never part
We’re like the melody in a tune

They say that as long as memories survive
That our loved ones have never gone
And so I know that Ash walks with me
She always keeps her presence strong

I miss you Ash
