You Are Gone
You're gone, and all that's left is nothing but memories,
Memories that lead me to silence and tears.
I miss your arms that hold me tight,
Your snore that fills our room at night.

You're gone, and I can no longer stare at you as you sleep,
But thank God he lets me see you as I weep.
In dreams we talk and laugh together.
There I can say I love you more than ever.

You're gone, and I feel so weary when I'm alone.
Wish you were here and would come back home.
I'm hurting and longing for your touch.
Why does parting have to hurt this much?

You're gone forever, and we are now apart.
I'm filled with pain that breaks my heart.
You used to playfully sneak behind the door.
Those lovely eyes I see no more.

You're gone, and I terribly miss your voice,
Your laughter that fills the house with noise.
Your absence makes me feel so blue.
My life is empty without you.
You was my very world, my ever-guiding star.
Your loving wife,

To the family my deepest condolences on the loss of Howard he was like a brother to me and I enjoyed when he would come over and hang out with Anthony at the house and we would sit on porch and drink beers and talk for hours. He will be missed GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN. Fly High Howard rest in heavenly peace.
