All I do now is hide from all the people I don't want to stand beside. I tell myself your on a vacation far away, the plane back here is only a delay. I pray and wish you were here. Every night out the window I stare, waiting for you to walk through the door, and tell me a story just once more. To see the smile that was attached to your face, It's hard to believe your in a new place. Your not here with us any more, my heart is nothing but sore. written by: Laura Anderson You are loved and missed very much! Love your family
