Two years ago I lost you and our unborn daughter
Two years ago you passed away
I didn't get to say goodbye
Or tell you how much I love you
I still remember that phone call
You were admitted to the hospital
With complications due to your pregnancy
I tried telling you it didn't feel right
That a bad feeling I had
Every hour I was given an update
You were getting worse
Your kidneys were shutting down
and Staph infection was found
Then the call at 1:13am
I was told that I didn't want to hear it
that you were gone
I hope you know how much I love you still
In my heart you will always belong
Never forgotten as I move on
I hope you're in heaven
watching over me
Actually I know you are still with me
I get unknown phone calls from 0000000000
when I answer
our song is playing on the other end
and from time to time I get an email
the first was right after you passed
saying "wish you were here"
how bad I wish I could've been
the pain is still there this time of year
but I found someone new
she will never take your place
but her love for me is just the same
so strong through good and bad
she chases away my nightmares
holds me tight through my flashbacks
allowed me to adopt her two daughters
she opened my heart to love again
but I still thank you
for showing me the love I deserve
it's been two years now
and I fight everyday for my life
I fight everyday to keep your memory alive
I love you Cari
I miss you every day
I think of you all the time
Because of you
My life has changed
As I sit here writing this
tears roll down my cheeks

This is a sad -- yet hopeful -- song.  A great tribute to your wife.  It really is a nightmare what happened -- but thank god you could live through it.  What a blessing -- just that you survived.  I am happy you have a soul-mate and two wonderful daughters.  You are brave to write this -- and you are strong.  --David
