Written for a friend who recently lost their cousin through a very tragic accident.


There may come a time in life
Where his smile fades from view
His voice thins to a distant still
His eyes creep to dusky hue

A sadness no words can prove
Fills your every aching bone
A pain so great it swallows you
Leaves you weeping all alone

No wish, no prayer, no pleading tear
Can bring back what has now gone
Not even an anger of fearful height
Can bring back whatís been undone

Disbelief at whatís been snatched away
Is just the start of a brand new hell
Fingers struggle to grasp a hold of the
Face youíve come to know so well

Thereís nothing now that you can do
To reclaim what was once yours
As a grief that no one should know
Seeps with pity form your pores

And it is at that moment then
That you should turn your face
And look up to the endless sky
And remember him with grace

Paint a smile across yours cheeks
And sweep away those bitter tears
Heís shining down with such a beauty
That heíll banish every fear

Remember the days of many smiles
That he spread from cheek to cheek
His inspiration and his motivation
That caused the words you now speak

With every tear falls a memory
Of a better place and better time
Of his love, his life, his energy
And the fact he lived his prime

How could you forget his love
Of adventure, life and vitality
Taking every chance that spun his way
And with a very right mentality

There may come a time in life
Where he fades from distant view
But donít forget your darling **
Is still smiling down on you.

this is really good

If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
