Grief Poem

A Thousand times we needed you.
A thousand times we cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.
A heart of gold stopped beating;
two twinkling eyes closed to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
he only took the best:
never a day goes by that you’re not
in my heart and my soul.
