I wasn't ready

My passion is strong

My heart feels pain

My eyes glisten from tears

My hands shake from fear

I am not ready to let go

You went too fast

In the blink of an eye you gone

All I could do was cry

and wish it wasn't true

To this very day you affect my decisions

You were such a kind, smart woman.

No one can ever be as wise as you.
