Mr darling Jim,
8 long years since I’ve had your arms around me.
I wish you could hold me tight, and I could feel your heartbeat.
I always knew how much you loved me, because you told me every day.
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak, you were my eyes when I couldn’t see.
You saw the best that was in me. Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach.
You made me what I am, because you loved me.
I know you always watch over us and we keep you near.
Love always, Shirley
