Yet another Tear
Strolls down my cheek
I feel so small
I feel so weak

Thinking of my hero
& what he taught me
it makes me think
who would he be?

I miss him so much
That kid & his smile
I only wish
he'd been here a while

I miss his laugh
It made him shine
A little bit longer
& ill be fine

Sitting thinking
Crying waiting
Until i can see him
Slowly fading

The author's comments:
This is about my little Brother, Joey, he passed away in 2005 of a brain tumor called a pontine glioma, which is a brain tumor located on the brain stem. He was 7 years old, and had the most contageuos laugh id ever heard. He was one of those people who loved life, and lived it for all that its worth, and he loved everybody, and everybody loved him. he had the kind of personality that anyone could get along with.

We miss you Joey, R.I.P.
