Because of You

What is the impact of one brief life?
It might take me forever to try to explain it.

One of the countless gifts I received from my daughter are the amazing people I've met and now call friends, because of Joan. 
One of those wonderful, dear friends sent me this poem today.
So very fitting.

Because of You


Because of you I appreciate the sunset more than before.

Because of you I stop to look up at the moon and wish upon a star.

Because of you I look forward to hearing the birds sing in the morning, and thank God for their beautiful songs.

Because of you I am more understanding of others and accept people for who they are.

Because of you material things do not matter.

Because of you the touch of someone you love is more precious than any gift you can receive.

Because of you I have a broken heart but I thank God for sending you to me.

For there is no stronger love than I hold for you.

Until we meet again...
