Written for my Last Will and Testament

I may not be able to sit next to you
I may not be able to hold your hand
I may not be able to kiss you
I may not be able to hug you
I may not be able to touch you
I may not be able to say I love you
I may not smile or laugh with you
I may not be here in the flesh

But I am here with you
For as long as you live
Because I live in your heart
When forever comes
We will all be together
Where peace reigns
In that heavenly realm
In that place we all long for
Home with our Creator

Remember I am here with you
I am a spirit in your heart
I will be in your memories
Reflect on them in your need
May they bring you joy
May they make you smile
May they bring you peace

I am still with you; I live inside your heart
