I Know

I know

I know I am still breathing as I hear every breath I take in the silence that has replaced the music of your voice.

I know my heart still beats though it beats much softer as it is no longer joined with yours.

I know I get up each morning and put one foot in front of the other but the path I walk is lonely as I only hear one set if footsteps.

I know I eat but it all seems tasteless without you to share it with.

I know I sleep at night but it is a fitful sleep as my body searches for your in the empty bed.

I know I will miss you every second of every day for the rest of my life.

I know the pain eventually becomes this small ache that never quite leaves your heart that the tears will subside but yet never completely go away and that joy and happiness will someday be part of my life again.

There is one more thing I know, I know one day, I will breathe easier, my heart will beat stronger, I will find a new path to walk, food will have taste again as I share it with family and friends, and I will sleep peacefully every night as I dream of the wonderful life we shared.

Most of all I know, I was fortunate enough to love you and be loved by you.

I know you are watching over me, so you know I am going to be okay. Don't worry my love, as you used to say, I always figure it out.
