Dear Cousin


The time has come for you to leave this place
And with your death we will all embrace.
The memories we have of the time spent with you
Though it will be hard we will get through.

You fought this disease with all of your might
Never once giving up on the fight.
Many will say that this thing called ALS won
But my dear cousin your life has just begun.

Many in heaven have been waiting for you.
Grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles and cousin David too.
And although on earth your time has come to an end
Knowing you are with god and family will help us mend.

When we look up into the sky at night,
We will look for the star that shines oh so bright.
For that will be you letting us know you are okay,
And that you are watching over your family every day.

So dear cousin for now we must say goodbye,
With a very sad heart and tears in our eye.
But knowing that when our time comes to an end
Our family will all be together again.
