Carpe Diem

- Carpe Diem -

He had a way about him, no one could deny
He always had a caring smile, a twinkle in his eye.
He was a gifted athlete,
with sportsmanship he played.
He was a brilliant scholar,
endless accomplishments he made.
He was a faithful friend,
filled somber lives with joy.
He was still so young,
still mother's innocent boy.
He'll never watch the sun again,
nor wish upon a star,
He'll never feel embrace again,
nor dream of lands afar.
We'll never hear his voice again,
for good bye we had to say.
We'll never see our friend again,
who before us lay so still today.
We stand together, motionless,
watch the casket taken away.
We listen as his mother prays,
"My boy taught us to Seize the Day!"

Written and read at his funeral by his high school friend. If she finds this, I'll give her full credit. She knows we love her.

January 17th marked 15 years since my little brother and best friend passed away. Some days he's with me, so fully it hurts. Others, he's just a memory, but never far from my mind. I grieve on Mondays and on Fridays and whenever I have needed to over the years.

But the date.

The actual date holds so much horror to me.

I miss him. He was the best of our family. I feel like my kids were cheated out of a kick ass Uncle. And I miss my brother.

I love you, Bro. Now and always.

I am all teary-eyed over here. I am SO sorry for your loss.

I wish I knew the right words to say...but I don't. Just know I am thinking of you!
