To Honor You: In Memory of Colt

In memory of Richard Colt Hazlett.
To honor you, I get up everyday and take a breath, 
and start another day without you in it.

To honor you, I laugh and love with those who knew your smile, 
and the way your eyes twinkled with mischief and secret knowledge.

To honor you, I take the time to appreciate everyone I love, 
I know now there is no guarantee of days or hours spent in their presence.

To honor you, I listen to music you would have liked, 
and sing at the top of my lungs, with the windows rolled down.

To honor you, I take chances, say what I feel,
 hold nothing back, risk making a fool of myself, dance every dance.

You were my light, my heart, my gift of love, from the very highest source. 

So everyday, I vow to make a difference, share a smile, live, laugh and love.

Now I live for us both, so all I do, I do to honor you.
