With Every Breath I Take

I miss you every second, 

As soon as I awake;

Every minute of every hour,

With every breath I take.

I see you when I'm fast asleep,

In all my dreams each night;

We talk, we laugh, we sing, we dance;

We hold each other tight.

I miss our walks, our times alone,

Your smile, your love so true.

I miss knowing your feet are somewhere on Earth;

I miss all that makes you, YOU.

A Father, my husband, my soul mate,

High school sweetheart and best friend.

You always said "Baby Doll, it's just you and me,

Against the world until the end.”

On March 13, 2013,

9 minutes after knocks at our door;

Just 5 miles down the road from home, 

Our life together was no more.

He asked a favor, you agreed,

That unwelcome man drove you away;

Driving drunk and then angry, he ended your life,

At 8:08 - our final Wednesday.

They tell me that you fought so hard,

To come back, to live, to BE;

After 34 years and all we've been through,

You didn't want to leave.

I promise to love only you;

I'll remain your faithful wife.

Never another You for me,

For what's left of the rest of my life.

I still feel you beside me every day, 

Your family you'd never forsake;

I'll love you until we're in heaven together,

With every breath I take.
