A Dedication: To Ethan


We waited and prayed for well over a year, for a wonderful outcome that would never be here, You were so strong, but your reward did come, i wondered why God let you fight so hard, just to take you away, your reward shouldve been to live, to stay.

But now I wonder and a new thought awakes, my heart begins to mend instead of break, your reward was not to live on earth for a short time, but to live forever in heaven, and feel no pain, have no worries, help pour out the rain,

So my dear cousin, your alive in memory, always here, just gone in body, one that never grew old.In my childish heart you'll always remain, until we meet in front of God again.

    A wonderful tribute. It is a special thing to read something so special to the writer. It always comes through. This was a very clean write with no flaws.
    The writer here is good.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
