For My Family and Friends
When—you can no longer talk to me
When—you can no longer hug me
When—you can no longer hear me say
How very much I love you
Then—you will know I’m gone.
When—you can talk about me without crying
When—you can feel the warmth of when my arms were around you
When—you can laugh at some of the things that we did together
When—you realize how much I love you without hearing me say it.
Then—you’ll know that you are at peace
And will hold me in your hearts always
As I hold you in mine.
