Maria

A life cut short by a broken heart,
We were once close but now apart,
Time spent together can never be enough,
The years without you are going to be tough.

You have a smile that brightens the darkest days,
That said you care in so many ways,
And a hearty laugh that sounds like thunder,
That breaks the clouds like a natural wonder.

Sadly the time has come that we must part,
You will always have a permanent niche in my heart.
