Dear Uncle Harry, I wish time had allowed us to know each other better. It hurts me that I didn't have the chance to say goodbye to you. We didn't talk to each other for a long time, so I don't understand why I'm hurting so bad from your absence. It just doesn't make sense. My memories of you are happy ones, but they are clouded by time's passage. I wrote you this poem as a way of trying to deal with your death. I hope you like it. I miss you so much! I love you! My eyes pour forth tears of bitterness and rage I feel so alone and confused Trapped, like I'm locked in a cage If someone is joking, I'm not amused I've lost someone who is so dear The water swallowed him down Living without him is my biggest fear My constant smile has been replaced by a frown He was so caring, generous and kind Always making life livable A person like him is so hard to find The event of his death is unforgivable My strongest feeling is that of regret Just beneath it are anger and fear A silence divided us for many years yet I can't hold back each little tear My Heavenly Father is who I call When heartache lasts so long Into His arms, He lets me fall And holds me until I'm strong So now, I say my last goodbye To a dear beloved man Hoping he'll teach me to fly When we're together once again I love you Uncle Harry!!!!!!!!!!
