I long to see you sitting there
I glance from time to time
The reminder of your absence
Is always on my mind
Sometimes Olivia plops right down
And shares a minute or two
Snoopy sleeps there often
As if that will be your cue
To walk in and say, “Get up, girl”
And give me back my seat
But then I quickly realize
As my heart seems to skip a beat
That even your voice is missing
From our home but not our heart
The memory of your smile
Will never from me part
Oh, Nick, we love you so much
You taught us more than a degree
Your chair may lack your presence
But it’s never really empty
Cause your spirit’s here-
It really is!
You still keep us on our toes
Every action, every word we say
From your memory flows…..
Thank you, Nick, for leading the way
With your courage and your love
We’ll live for Him until the day
We meet you up above!
See you soon.
Love, Your Mommy
