I Thought of You Today

I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too,
I think of you in silence
...I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake
with which I’ll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart.

Thanks for that
by: BB

Thanks for this last comment. I have found other people expressing their doubt ,too. Also I looked at the Gone Too Soon Site where Debbi said she published it and I could not find it there on the site dedicated to her Dad.

I doubt this was written by Debbie
by: Anonymous

After seeing this poem for the first time also felt like I could've written it for a friend that I lost. The sentiment is absolutely beautiful. But this is definitely at least 30 years old because I saw it at the funeral of a high school friend that died in 1984 or 1985.

Absolutely Meaningful
by: Christine

I have loved this poem since I saw it several years ago. I plan on putting it in the paper with credit to the author on the anniversary of my dearest husband's death. Thank you Debbi. May God bless you always.

Your poem was used in The Netherlands
by: BB

Debbi ,
I have so wanted to find the author of this poem !It was read out at my partner's
funeral in The Netherlands and people were just
so moved by it and I was so very grateful to you for providing me with a way of expressing how I felt. Meanwhile I have sent it on to various people who get goose bumps reading it.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

loved the poem!
by: Anonymous

My brother died unexpectantly. He thought he had at least 4 more years. It was quick; he was brought to the hospital at midnight and died 4 hours later.
I can't believe he is gone. i think about the things I wanted to send him or tell him but it is not to be. I didn't think I would miss him so much. He died on his birthday.
