    My only regret is that if I had
    known that the last time I saw
    you, would be the last time I saw
    you, I would have hugged you a
    little tighter, told you I loved you
    a little louder and stayed by your
    side a little longer.
    My mind knows that you are gone
    but my heart will never accept it.
    I miss you so much.
