"We will truly miss you”





I am Learning How to Live


I am learning how to live

In a new way

Since that day

You were taken away


I am learning how to live with things left unsaid

Knowing I got to say them

With every tear that I shed


I am learning how to live

By embracing the pain

Knowing that you live on

Through the memories that remain


I am learning how to live

Knowing I will never again see your face

And I have peace knowing

You’re in a better place


I am learning how to live

Knowing you’re in Allah’s care

It gives me the strength to move on

And makes the pain much easier to bear.
