For Simon.

This was my first ever post to UKA back in October 2003. 

for Simon.


I miss you in the morning,
When I wake up in my bed.
an image of your cheeky smile,
appears inside my head.

I miss you in the afternoon,
whilst I go about my day.
memories of you cheer me up,
even when the day is grey.

I miss you in the evening,
when I sit and watch TV.
I hear your laughter in my head,
and wish you were sat with me.

I miss you in the night-time,
When I lay and cannot sleep.
Sometimes I lie in the darkness,
and thoughts of you make me weep.

But no matter how much I miss you,
In my heart I’ll always know.
My life is richer for knowing you,
I’m just sad you had to go.

God Bless you Simon.

This eulogy will always carry the freshness of sentiment, being written from the heart, Jay, always serve it’s personal purpose. Thanks for posting! (Typo: ‘here’ should be ‘hear’).
Best, Trevor
