Thank you my friend for all you have done for me.
You help me to forget my past, you help me go to sleep.
You were the one who has watched me through it all.
Through the death of my closest friend you didn't let me fall.
There is nothing anyone can say or do to make me feel complete.
I have to trust in you my friend the one who made me unique.
For you are not a person and you never will be mine.
Because you are that of God for what you are is TIME.
You are the only way to get me through my hurt.
A day, a week, a month, a year, you have helped me out since birth.
So what I ask of you O' time is to take me far away.
So I won't feel this pain again, take me miles from today.

I just want to say that this poem and the other poem that Joel has written "Who would you be today" has touched my life is so many ways. Nobody realizes how hard it is to move on after you have lost a loved one until they have experienced it. I think this poem really shows the emotions that I went through losing my wife.
