After nine years of writing poems special for you
I am still wondering why there was no sign, not even a clue.
Everyone tells me to move forward and try not to get blue
Because you are in a safe place and at peace, I hope it's true.
The box that you left us, I kept closed for all these years,
Only to find nothing, it just brought back the pain and more tears.
All the memories of you will always remain so dear
I'll be ready to meet you someday without any fear.
