Being Here Without You

I am living in a world where the wind no longer blows through your hair my love                         And the warmth of the sun no longer falls upon your face                                                             Sometimes I feel like I am doing something wrong                                                                                 Being here without you                                                                                                                      As if someone is going to stop me in the mall and demand an explanation                                     I know in my mind that for both of us I will carry on                                                                       But sometimes my heart tries to rule the day                                                                                 Happy fortieth anniversary Sweetheart

    Michael, the scene evokes anguish and bittersweet emotions at the loss of a soul mate. I believe the deeply felt emotion makes it possible that she is by your side in these moments ...congrats on your win in the contest :)
