My cousin J and his Father were very close. After J’s Father passed last year he wrote the following poem. It really touched me and I am posting it with his permission.
I wish you were here but you’re there
I feel alone and scared
My whole life you were always around
Now only memories to be found
I try not to worry or think
When I do it just makes me sink
I know you want me to do good
To bring you back I would do anything I could
I’m going be to the best I can
Because I learned from a great man
You will always be by my side
Until it’s my turn to catch that ride
That’s when I will see you again
But not for a while my friend
Thanks @U_wanna_be_j, I love you!
