On my mind

A year has past and I cry just when I mention your name . So hard being without you , so much left to say to you . But you were gone to soon.. I know your wonderful up with Grandpa and your Mom and the Lord walking at your side .. But it doesn't erase the pain I have inside , It doesn't makeup for Birthdays come and gone and no call from you.. You never forgot me as I know you are still watching over me ... Damn I miss you Is it amazing as we've always heard , Will we really see each other again .. Smiling in stthe sun and laughing as we watch Heavens everlasting gleam . I still can hear your voice and that giggle you'd do when ya cracked a joke on Dad ... Ornery as ever and I bet even that hasn't changed .. Wait for me by a fishing hole and wild flowers swaying in the breeze .. Will drink ice tea and mesmerize of all the beauty God created for me and for you .. I love you Bub be good and Till I write again as it's all I have of you .. Memories and a great smile from you .. Your Seesrer 

Forever on my mind .

Your memory will forever be on my mind . 

I can still see you as a wild 2 year old , which me at ten had the responsibility of chasing you down . 

You sure was a busy one , And didnt like being kept in a confined area. Between you and Nick I was a tired little girl , Stevie was four and held his own well . I just loved your little face , and the looks you made when you were up to no good was easy to detect , followed by you running off lickity split . I wasnt around long and went back to California and you all grew up . I didnt see you again for years , at that point you were a teen ager and roaming Greenwood area . It wasnt till 1992 that we came to grow close after I moved out here .. You was the only one who ever came to see me where I lived . You were up to no good but I took you for you and nothing else . We seemed to have a close communication and understanding of each other and never judged the other for choices made . Kindred spirits I believe it is . Years past I moved back and forth , Each time I was here for the short times we always connected and made sure we knew each other were never forgotten that we were family and loved each other that you were my bubby and I your seester . Through the years when you were in and out of prison or jail we kept in contact . You knew where you was supposed to be and to how you was supposed to live your life , But the disease of your lifes demons kept you out of control of where your heavenly soul needed to be . We talked about it a lot , I understood cause I too have demons that control me .. We just accepted each others ways and went on . I miss hearing you when youd call me .. if just to say I love you seester , Words i still dream i could hear . Last i heard you was 2 days before you left to forever hold Gods embrace . You hugged me and smiled saying i love you from my head down to my gallbladder , what a silly bubby you were. I cry for you still , i miss you it hurts for real . You didnt need to die but God let you without a goodbye . I hate that your breath was taken away .. Down into the freezing water I know God freed you from pain . We will be together again one day . We will walk with God in the promissed land . Until that day comes I'll keep your memory alive by sharing my words .. And watching your kids grow up in the likeness of you . I LOVE YOU MATTCHEW , YOUR SEESTER .
