it’s harder than i thought.
it’s impossible to believe.
i can’t understand why.
the great ones are snatched up from us all too soon.
i should have prayed harder.
i should have done more.
i should have been around more often.
now i try to remember to lift my head up.
remain in the light.
live out his legacy.
bring joy and inspiration to others like he did.
break the rules for what’s right.
pay it forward.
that’s what he would tell us to do now, not wallow.
we pretend to be ok when we’re hurting.
we pretend to smile and it comes out pained.
its hard to ignore the hole left in our hearts.
we must continue knowing we will never see his smile or hear his laugh again in this lifetime.
we must go on knowing the suffering is over.
we must move forward with our days knowing his legacy lives on.
