Sitting on my bed,
Looking through my photo album,
Something falls out
I pick it up
It’s a photograph of you
You’re carrying me in your arms
We’re laughing
It’s my birthday
Everyone’s happy
 
I run my fingers, through the photo
I can still remember your smile
Everything about you
I can still remember your laughter
The twinkle in your dark, brown eyes
Your soft touch
 
I wish I could be with you again
I wish I said goodbye before you left
Forever
Never coming back
Never going to be seen again
I wish I was there
To say my final goodbyes
But I couldn’t
I couldn’t do it
 
Uncle Jury,
If there was one wish
I could have,
It would be for you
To be alive again
To live
Laugh,
Cry
 
To be with May and her Mother again
To be with you
To watch you grow old
To grow with you,
To ask for advice
 
But I can’t
It’s never going to happen
I can’t have my dreams come through
 
Sometimes I wish you could be here
 
I remembered when I cried,
You wiped away my tears and told me,
Everything would be alright
When I was scared,
You helped my fight away my fears,
You were my hero
The one who took away the monsters
That were under my bed
 
You were loved by everyone
Everyone misses you
 
My wounds and scars haven’t yet healed
They’re never going to
I thought I would get through it
But it still seems that you are still here
Watching over from above
 
I wish it had never happened
I wish I could turn back the time
I know it’s been four years since you left
But to me it seems like yesterday
 
When we were coming to house,
I was so excited
I couldn’t wait to see you again
I couldn’t wait to see you again
I wanted to see you smile
To hear your voice and to hear your laughter
 
Tears flow from my eyes
They flow down freely like a waterfall
The tears don’t stop
 
 
The words “Uncle Jury is dead,”
Hit me like a hard blow
I couldn’t believe it
The uncle I loved was gone
Gone forever
I broke down in tears
Everyone thought I was too young to understand
But they were wrong
 
Everything was as blur
I cried in the car
When we arrived at your house,
Still in tears,
I rushed in,
Hopping with all my heart,
That you’d be in the lounge room,
Watching television,
Or playing with May
 
But you weren’t there
 
Instead, I could see people
Crying their heart out
 
I froze there
Trying to take everything in
I screamed and sank to the floor
It was true
You were gone
Gone forever
 
You were never coming back
 
Everyone tried to comfort me
I ran away from them
I wanted to be left alone
 
I ran to May’s mother’s arms
We cried together
We shared our grief together
I missed you already
We both did
Things were different without you there
 
Uncle, even though you’re gone,
I still miss you so much
I still love you with all my heart
Rest in peace Uncle.
Rest in peace.
