I am the way I am because you loved me.
I am the way I am because you believed in me.
I am the way I am because you saw in me what I couldn't.
I am the way I am because you knew how strong I could be.
I am the way I am because you always encouraged me.
I am the way I am because you shared your strength, your kindness, your laughter, your intellect, your goodness, your wit, your goofiness and your total being with me.
I was and still feel deeply loved by you. Even though you are not physically present, I am surrounded by your loving embrace and feel safe knowing that you still reside within my heart. You share my heartbeat. You are my first thought on arising and my last thought when I lay down for the night. Your influence is in every action I take, in every decision I make and yes, even in every thought that crosses my mind.
We were glued together in almost everything we did and we loved that. But we were strong individuals who complimented each other like pieces in a puzzle.
What an incredible partnership we had - one of total love, respect and joy.
And all this -- because you loved me..... and I loved you. And I still do.
