A Year Missing You
Sweet little Ryan, a year has passed by,
A year since the time that we had to say goodbye.
Your light shines with us in all that we do,
In our smiles, our hearts, our friends and family too.
From bike rides together, trips to the zoo,
Studying for exams, and family outings too.
Your presence was with us, like the grace of a butterfly,
But we still can't help but wonder, how fast this year has gone by.
Missing you has stung like no other sting,
It strikes at my core and sometimes all I can do is sing.
I sing to remind myself that this time without you is just an in between,
I sing to praise God, our Almighty King.
He has saved you as no one else could,
Not myself or your Dad, but you know that we would.
With God you are now, our little angel boy,
And someday, we will know your joy.
Sweet little Ryan, I miss you so,
I feel you in Charlotte's squeezes and see you in her, I know.
We are thankful for the blessings this year has brought,
And hope that you know, you are in our every thought.
It doesn't matter where we are, or what we have done,
Our hearts are always with you, my son.
