      As tears roll down my face,
      I know you’re in a better place.
      I close my eyes to see your face,
      suddenly I feel a warm embrace.
      With a smile so wide,
      it brings tears to my eyes.
      I try so hard not to cry;
      all of my pain I cannot hide.
      You always knew just what to say
      to anyone having a bad day.
      I don’t know if I will ever understand,
      but it must be part of God’s plan.
      As I look up towards the blue sky,
      I imagine you spreading your wings to fly.
      Be sure to give your Mom a sign
      so she knows you are fine.
      Tell everyone there I send my love
      to all of the Angels up above
      give my brother a high five for me and tell him I know he is my Angel to be.
      As the tears roll down my face,
      I know you are in a better place.
      And I know your still here gracing us with your face.

      Love you little cuz!!!!!! And I’m paddle shifting all the way down the high. Thanks again
