Oh how I wish you were still alive

start Today is yours and your niece’s Birthdays You would be turning 35 Oh how I wish you were still alive. An extra candle we place upon her cake And we sing for you a special song Not having you here seems so wrong Such a terrible thing that you left so soon Each year we add another balloon With messages written for you, all them we then release Standing motionless as we watch the last one float off in the breeze. Hoping that at least one in Heaven will arrive Oh how I wish you were still alive So hard for those you left behind family, friends and a little minni-me She you ought to see Like two peas in a pod Another just like you - whats the odds And a son so young without a mommy or memories to be had it is so very sad But what a little man he has became I will be sure he knows you in all your glory and fame. and we all will make sure they both continue to thrive Oh how I wish you were still alive Every Birthday and Holiday that comes and goes My sadness I try not to show, I look around and realize you are gone I find myself becoming withdrawn To die is easy but to be left behind Is the worst thing for mankind You will always be my Amy Sue I honor you with a tattoo But the ache in my heart and the pain in my sole Has taken away my glow A pain so deep It keeps me awake, unable to sleep It is easy to die harder to survive Oh how I wish you guys were still alive Always in my heart, always on my mind; never be forgotten. Give your dad a hug from me. end

Give your dad a hug for me puts this poem into another mindset entirely. Two losses. Whoa! Hold everything; this is so unfair! I hope writing this down helps in some tiny way; I myself, find writing therapeutic. I hope you do too. All the best!
