Duncan, my constant companion, guardian, confidant, and closest friend
August 25, 1995 – May 18, 2007
Always in my heart, forever loved and missed
Eleven and a half years together just wasn't enough...
He was the rock we all leaned on,
He was the one we couldn't do without,
Somehow I thought he'd always be here,
Of his love there was no doubt.
Wish I could say that time has made me stronger,
I'd like to say I've grown somehow,
Then I fall in the hole he left behind
Don't you know it's a long way down...
