before you left me,
i thought we would have forever to meet again.
it was foolish of me to think
that we lived in a perfect world.
you are gone now;
along with my dreams of ever
laying my eyes upon your face
or clutching your life in my arms
when hugging you.
i will forever miss the memories we shared,
and those we could have made.
you live on though.
through your family, friends,
and your son nicolas.
he is my savior.
each time i look at his lively face
i will think of you.
your joyous spirit
and posotive attitude torwards life.
you were there for me, and now,
i feel as if i have let you down.
while you desperatly grasped onto life,
i simply elt you go.
i know you would want me to live on
as if you were still here with me today,
but i cant.
you were the uncle in my life whom i loved.
with you gone my world is empty.
not the same.
nor will it ever be. '02
