My sweet nephew Nathan, my little dude.
The last few days I have wished I was a poet as I cannot seem to get the words out to adequately express how much I miss you… I will have to rely on other poets to say these things for me.
If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane,
I’d walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again.
No Farewell words were spoken,
No time to say good-bye,
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.
My heart’s still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.
God knows why, with chilling touch,
Death gathers those we love so much,
And what now seems so strange and dim,
Will all be clear, when we meet Him.
I Knew you for a Moment.
