A small part of me took flight
on that fatal day,
as I watched her 
slowly slip away !

It was 12 years ago
she had to depart,
but she still lives
here within my heart !

I did what I felt was right,
but something went wrong
somehow that week,
and now she is gone !

Her essence is all around 
and surrounds me,
keeping alive 
each memory !

No matter how long I live,
I will always see
her lovely face,
smiling back at me !
