When I was a child
she was everything I lived for.
When she was old
I was everything she lived for.
There were times in-between
when it seemed as if neither one of us
existed for the other.
And now that she is gone
all that I am sure of
is that there is one less person
on the face of this Earth
That will tell me the words,
I love you.
