I got home from U of M on Wednesday and found this scrawled poem that Jim had written me while I was there. Just another reason I feel so blessed.
Cancer can't take away your smile or laughter
It can't take away our happily ever after
It can't take away your warmth and love
the touch of your hands
and the fact that
you've made me a better man
It can't take away from our late night spoons
or coming to a theater near you soon
It can't take away Muhammad's lighting of the torch
or Gibby's home run to the right field porch
It can't take away all the young men and women you
have helped mold
It can't touch your mind, your spirit, or your soul.
It can't take away your courage to help others in need
It can't take away Josh's love or give Andrew any speed
It can't take away our wonderful dreams that lay deep down inside
And it can't take away your Viking pride
It can't touch your love for family and friends
And it can't touch that I will never, ever
have to look for my soulmate again.
