I’ll Miss You Before You’re Gone
I’ll miss you before you’re gone .
I think about it
when I kiss you on your forehead in the morning.
I’ll never meet a person as strong.
An image of you not around keeps haunting me.
If I am in this world without you, even more, I’ll feel like I don’t belong.
Some might think it’s strange that I have these thoughts while you’re still here.
Throughout my life special people continue to be taken.
I know all too well how a beautiful thing can quickly disappear,
that’s why I fear, why these images in my mind continue to appear.
One day I will look for you, no matter how hard I stare, you will not be there.
Every time I see you, I study your smile and its perfect curve
so I never forget your breathtaking glow.
I remember you now and when the moment occurs
I will make sure my image of you can never be blurred .
Instead of fading, your memory will always continue to grow.
When you can’t speak anymore, inside my heart, you will always be heard.
So deeply expressed in this letter
to let you know before it’s too late.
Blowing in the breeze, on top of my pen, a feather.
I’ll miss you before you’re gone, then I’ll miss you forever.
I’ll miss you before you’re gone, because the feeling can’t wait.
Right now I miss you more than ever.
