A Prayer for a Misfit Toy

No man is an island...not even a misfit toy.

Please do not misconstrue my absence
for anything more than what it is
my absence

We will always be together.
Though we walk separate paths,
Shared memories of laughter and tears
Do not fade with the passage of time.

You live in my thoughts
Where you come to life each day.

You live in my actions
That inspire me to be a better person.

You live in my prayers
That more often than not tend to be answered.

Neither time nor silence can break our bonds.

Know that you will always live in a heart
That begs forgiveness for transgressions and sins,
Real and otherwise imagined.

But please, do not misconstrue my absence
for anything more than what it is
my absence.

Amen!
