A Quiet New Year's Eve...
©Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart 1/1/2013
Last New Year's Eve I woke you up
When midnight rang the New Year in.
We softly kissed as we always did
And prayed for a miracle once again.
No midnight kiss, no loving Bill,
No miracle did our Lord fulfill.
My first New Year's Eve without you.
I miss you so, holidays have been empty
Without your love and wonderful smiles.
And my smiles are certainly few
As I face another year without you.
I do have wonderful memories
of all the things that made us one
I know you are in heaven now
With the Father and the holy Son.
I pray I told you often enough
How much I loved and appreciated
Your warmth, your love, your kisses and such
That still warm my heart so very much.
But God has given me hope and strength
That I never imagined I had
And yes, I know I will live on
Even though I lost the best friend and love
I ever had~
