It's only been two days without you, but I'm heartbroken when thinking about never getting to hear your voice again. To never hear your beautiful compliments or argue about why I won't take your money. Days move forward without you, but my heart doesn't forget. The day that you left us I said "I love you" and that is still the only words that come to mind to share. I will love you for always and miss you deeply.
