May 11th was an extremely tragic day.
The day that the good lord took you away.
Big J, I don’t even know where to start.
A very little kid with a very big heart.
Although we weren’t mad close, we would always hang out.
Either at someone’s house or out and about.
It tricks me out cause you were such a happy kid.
You used to smile sometimes. Wait, you always did.
You were one of those guys that I’d love to be around.
Whatever we wanted to do you were always down.
It seems now that you’re so far away.
I was just with you the other day.
Walking to get my tattoo drawn.
Three days later you’re suddenly gone.
In my heart though I know you’re in a better place.
You can’t get hurt anymore. There’s only lots of space.
For you to be free.
Just know that you affected me.
And everyone you knew.
We don’t know what to do.
We don’t want to believe it,
But we’re gonna have to see it.
Every little life affects others in so many ways.
I just wish you would’ve seen it, and looked at life in a new gaze.
Had I known that Tuesday’s moment was our last.
I would’ve absolutely cherished every second that passed.
Jordan, you’re gonna be in my prayers for a very long time.
Don’t ever be afraid to drop a dime.
And give me a call from above once and awhile.
Seeing pictures of your face will always make me smile.
La familia will never be the same.
One of Randy’s kids may have your name.
From now on when I hear your name, I’m not gonna sit and cry.
I’m just gonna rep you till the day I die.
I love you Jordan.
