YOUR GIFT TO ME – for Jimi

 

Soon it will be two years

Since you’re gone

Sometimes it feels like forever

Other times just yesterday

So much has changed

I think by losing you

I was able to find myself

Strange this feeling of peace

That’s settled over me

And quieted the storms

Of my soul

Is this your gift to me

I wonder

In life you gave me so much

In death you’ve given me

Something more

What used to bring tears to my eyes

Now brings a smile

The feelings I used to deny myself

In good times and bad

I now welcome

The people I used to take for granted

End even hate sometimes

I now cherish

Soon it will be two years

Since you’re gone

And I still grieve your loss

But now I can also celebrate

The many things that I have found –

Joy, sorrow

Friendship, family –

Life itself

So precious

So fragile

And so wonderful
