It’s Been A Year Since You’ve Gone

Scott McGillivray
July 16, 1961 – October 27, 2018

It’s been a year since you’ve gone
My heart is still broken
I sleep on your side of the bed
So I don’t feel the emptiness
Time keeps flying by
Which is good, I guess
I am happy now
But on days like today,
It doesn’t show
I miss holding your hand
And kissing you
And hearing that you love me
But you’re with me
As you watch over Abby
I can feel it
So I smile
As I exhale
I’m grateful for all the goodness in my life
And the lessons I keep learning
Moving forward
Each step takes me in the right direction
Each day is a new beginning,
And each year is to be celebrated
It’s been a year since you’ve gone
That day is almost upon us
But I won’t give it any power
To wash over me
My soul will be dancing in your arms
Feeling blessed to have had you in my life.
