Family Poems:



It’s sometimes hard to know

Why some things happen as they do

For so much joy and happiness

Was centered around you


It seems so hard to comprehend

That you’re no longer here

But all the happy memories

Will help to keep you near


You’re thought about with pride, Son

With each mention of your name

Death cannot change a single thing

The love will still remain

Love, Mom



A Silent Tear

Just close your eyes and you will see

All the memories that you have of me

Just sit and relax and you will find

I’m really still there inside your mind


Don’t cry for me now I’m gone

For I am in the land of song

There is no pain, there is no fear

So dry away your silent tear


Don’t think of me in the dark and cold

For here I am, no longer old

I’m in that place thqt’s all filled with love

Known to you all, as “Up Above”


Bobby, Brittany & Quita



I Thought Of You Today


I thought of you today,

But that is nothing new.

I thought of you yesterday,

And will tomorrow too.

I think of you in silence,

And make no outward show.

For what it meant to lose you,

Only those who love you know.

Remembering you is easy,

I do it every day.

It’s the heartache of losing you,

That will never go away.
