For Emily

Hey Em,
I was only there in Utah briefly and I haven't been able to be there for you much as a friend, but I just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I wrote this for you.

It's Too Soon

It's too soon to be okay, you don't have to be that strong.
Your heart has been broken, a little piece gone,
and it won't ever be the same.
In time you will change, you'll get used to that ache,
and more often forget that it's there,
But for now its okay to let yourself feel
the full sadness and pain of your loss.

Life keeps on going, we can't make it stop,
and we can't undo the past,
But we can take our time and carefully think
how to best heal our tender hurt heart.

Our tears and our meltdowns don't show that we're weak,
or lack enough faith to press forward.
It's proof of our love and utter devotion
to family and friends in our life.

So take all the time that you possibly need,
feeling fine can wait for tomorrow.
We love you, support you, and pray for your strength
to carry your burden so heavy.
