why did i lose you?

i remember your cheeky laughter and
curly hair and the way it’d dance in the wind 
your jokes were bad but i always grinned 
then why tell me why did i lose you 
for you are a treasure if only i knew 
if only my stubbornness would melt away 
your tight embrace would make things okay 
why or why did God have to take you away 

but you’re not gone  certainly not for me 
you will always live on amongst this earth 
i prayed for your spirit and said amen 
to be honest i never lost you and
never will  for you’re a soul that lives on
in my heart and amongst all this land
