Time to reflect

she sits relaxed and fast asleep
oblivious to all around
a gentle snore from very deep
she sits relaxed and fast asleep
exhausted trying not to weep
the month when memories abound
she sits relaxed and fast asleep
oblivious to all around

two long years has passed her by
time to reflect at what had been
still hard remembering and not cry
two long years has passed her by
still asks the question why oh why
was he chosen to leave life's scene
two long years has passed her by
time to reflect at what had been

    I reflect on six long years that passed by like a blur. I still can't imagine what you go through. I feel for you and wish there was some advice I could give you, but words fail. I think time is the only thing that will help. I hope you find some peace during this time.
