This is the poem that I am thinking about using as Josh's final message to his wife. Comments anyone?
"I was there"
I was there when you needed me
I picked you up and carried you home
brushing away the tears as we went.
"I'm scared," you whispered
I couldn't help but smile, gently kissing
the tears away.
"I'll never let you go," I said as
the light faded from your eyes.
I laid you down, beneath the tree
in the cold earth, forever more.
