We always said goodbye to a lot of things
Like the tree has to say goodbye to its
leaves for the winter which precedes the spring.

As such I miss you very much and shall never replace you with anyone, because
you always will be in my heart.

I would like you always to be with me for
I love to take your hand and play with you,
but your sadness is like the slow passing
that reminds me of the old places we cherished.
