Steven’s Poem

Little Cousin, I love so much, how I’m longing for your touch.

Just one more hug before you go, just to know, I love you so.


Little nephew, you were such a blast. I always thought our fun would last

Rest in peace, you were a good boy, always bringing your family great joy.


Little brother I tried to guard, without your smile, life will be so hard.

I watched you as you started to walk, and what laughter we shared when you began to talk.


Twin brother you were always there. You were my breath, my heart, my soul, now who will care?

Part of me is now lost, now in heaven, at such a high cost.


Big brother was showing me a world of fun. How to ride a bike, to fish, or to just lay in the sun.

You will always be in my heart, just as you have been from my very start.


Grandson, who always filled us with pride, you will still stand by our side.

I held you when you scraped your knee. I wish this had passed as easily.


Son, whom I kissed each night before bed. I wish to God it had been me instead.

You had so much more to do in life, to dance, to drive, to have children and a wife.


God has a purpose for you I know. So, I weep here as you must now go.

Please visit me as much as you can. I pray I hold you again someday in the Promised Land.


With all the wicked things around, perhaps the Lord needed someone full of laughter around.

Now in heaven, you can guard us all through each night, each stumble, each fall.


Just one more thing before you go–

Steven, we all loved you so.
