Favorite Quote:
Always live for today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow is guaranteed.

God knew that you were getting weak.
A cure was not to be,
So from Heaven he came down,
And said to you, "Come to me."

He knew we loved you dearly,
But he knew you had to go,
So he took you out of our lives;
This is how I know:

You're lying here today,
With your arms across your chest.
All your hurt and pain is gone;
You finally get to rest.

Everyone that knew you,
Knows exactly how I feel;
Unprepared for this to happen
And wishing it unreal.

But there's no way I could wish you back,
To the place that you were in,
And let you hurt and suffer,
The way you were, again.

When my grandfather passed away, the entire family was devastated. So, while sitting in the the funeral home parking lot, I wrote this poem in his honor.
