Sympathy Poem: Because of you, I...

Sometimes we are only given a few minutes to be with the one we love, and, thousands of hours to think of them.

How would you answer this statement, “Because of you, I…”

Below is how a bereaved mother answered the question:

 Because of you, I love a little more.

Because of you, I take time to give an extra kiss good-bye.

Because of you, I have a new favorite song,

Because of you, there may be dust on the window sill,

and I don’t care.

Because of you, I live today,

before I worry about tomorrow.

Because of you, I don’t give up quite as fast.

Because of you, I still believe in rainbows.

Because of you, now I can help or listen more.

Because of you…
