For a dearly loved Nephew
A nephew eyes has gone forever
His smile, his laugh, his face
Where once he stood, before us
A lone picture takes his place.
Gone to soon, a fine young man
From here, your place of birth
I can’t believe that this is real
That you no longer walk this earth.
Reality is, I know it’s true
But still I can’t believe
A fine young man with so much life
Really had to leave.
We loved you from your time of birth
We watch you grow and learn
My nephew, we shall meet again
When it’s time to return.
