I do not need a special day to bring you to my mind.

The days I do not think of you are very hard to find.

Each morning when I awake I know that you are gone.

And no one knows the heartache as I try to carry on.

My heart still ache with sadness and secret tears still flow.

What it meant to lose you --- no one will ever know.

My thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.

In life I loved you dearly; in death I love you still.

For always
Your Oma

PS: I've added this instrumental music (my best friend) in particular, because it has such a very sensitive meaning for me. 
Why? Because: in the year 2000 Pipke became ill for the very first time in her life. 
We had visited the vet already 14 days and she still wasn't getting better. 
We thought at that moment that we would loose her. 
They played this song on the car radio while we drove back home after our visit to the vet. 
I burst into tears when I heard it. 
will never forget how desperate I felt then.
It still makes me very emotional when I hear it.
Since then I call this: "Pipke's song".
