    The two of you

    Every day I have to talk myself into believing, It’s not this bad.
    Walking alone, looking back on what we had.

    You and I together, we were the perfect combination.
    In my eyes, you were the lord’s most remarkable creation.

    Just days after I lost you. I realized it was you to blame, for me finally becoming a man.
    Your tender words always gave me the strength, and courage to face the world, and say I can.

    Not only were you the greatest love, a man could ever know.
    You were also my best friend. A woman, who would be telling me, it’s time to let go.

    I have never known a pain to hurt so much. Life without you, has become a constant bother.
    I can’t stop thinking of you. But particularly, in the way you would compare me, to your father.

    I know how much your father meant to you. But at his funeral, I never understood what you meant. When you kissed his hands and whispered in his ear forever.
    Until last night in a dream, When Jesus showed me the two of you, reunited in his arms together.

    Thank you for posting Garrett.....heart-wrenching and beautiful all at the same time. Expressing your emotions through writing is a wonderful and helpful tool for coping with grief, I believe.

    Garrett, I have to echo Tanya and just say that it's a blessing you're able to get your feelings out and share them with others through your writing.
    Thank you.
