I just saw you a few days ago, we sat together. It was your birthday

You told me a great story about an author of cowboy books

I was always amazed by your knowledge


We said goodbye like we always did

I can still feel you as if my arms were still wrapped around you

If only I would have known it would be the last time, I would have held you much longer

I would have told you how much you meant to me. We all would have


You were so strong, so proud, and so sweet

You were such a big part of this family

Such a big part of so many lives

And to humble to notice


I loved having your attention

Even when I was a teen and you would just give me that look

That look that said  “ you have so much to learn… But you’ll get it “

You never criticized me even when it was due

It meant so much to me when you told me you were proud of me


I sit here today remembering… everything

Even that dreadful phone call

It was so sudden…

You weren’t supposed to go… Not you

You were to strong, to important

So now tears fall and sorrow fills our days

As we pick up the pieces of our shattered hearts

But we can take comfort in knowing that you are with an old friend

And we will all once again wrap our arms around you and sit together
