Dear Uncle Dave,
It's been awhile,
I don’t know how I’ve been so brave,
It feels like your absence has become so vile.
10 years can fly by like a train,
I still haven’t told you what I’ve had to say,
And it seems that it will never cease to rain,
But I promise that I am okay.
I’ve come to terms with your end,
Though you always cross my mind
Along with those letters you never got to send,
But really I was never blind.
I saw your pain,
I saw your suffering,
You were never to blame,
And now it’s clear that you’re hovering.
Your pain is gone,
Your hands are untied,
It’s like a new dawn,
All my tears have dried.
I know you are watching from above,
So I promise I’ll write to your stone daily,
