INSCRIPTION: "A Slugger Gone Home"

[Poem: Author Unknown]
Always a silent hurt,
many a silent tear,
but always a beautiful memory
of one we loved so dear.

God gave us strength to bear it,
and courage to take the blow,
but what it meant to lose you one will ever know.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Looking back on the memory of
the dance we shared, beneath
the stars above, for a moment
all the world was right.
How was I to know that you'd
ever say goodbye?
And now I'm glad I didn't know
the way it all would end, the
way it all would go.
Our lives are better left to chance.
I could have missed the pain,
but I'd have had to miss the dance.'
~ Garth Brooks, The Dance

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Someone asked if I missed you,
I didn't answer,
I just closed my eyes
and walked away,
then I whispered "So Much".

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

If Tears Could Build A Stairway,
And Memories A Lane,
I'd Walk Right Up To Heaven
And Bring You Here Again.
