Words from your soldier

Sometimes the memories fade and the emptiness grows

So I look at your pictures and see your smile

The laughter, the pain, the love we shared

The void that can never be filled

Come see me sometimes, I want to hear your voice

The anger, the joy, the hugs for peace

Lost somewhere are the times we spent

Empty hands that miss your strength

I will stand tall as you taught me well

Forever missing your love that can never be replaced

Happy Birthday Abu . . .
