About the Poem
This was written in memory of my cousin, Bobby. He was in a wheel chair most of his life and couldn't move anything on his body except his fingers. His strength to go on touched everyone he ever met.
Without any symptoms, he got sick very fast. His death affected the whole family in a lot of ways. This is my attempt to express my love for him and my family.

|People never knew just how much he meant to me and you
They knew him by name, but it's still not the same
His eyes so bright, his smile so wide
We always let him know we were right there by his side
Now he's gone from me and you
Now we have no reason to be blue
We loved him, he loved us
And we have to try not to fuss
He said goodbye and gave you a kiss
Now all we can do is reminis
Why does God take the best to love
Up to that great big world up above?
His memory will never leave
His kind and gentle smile will always be seen
Never forget him, never let him leave your mind
Tell him you love him, just one more time.
