Cousins - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Cousins for life, now separated by death's insistence,
as our memories meld and join beyond gates of heaven.
So silently, unknown, God came and you walked into the night
alongside Him - so quietly that we didn't even feel a ripple
touch our hearts.
It's a different story now though, as we are emptied daily
of our tears of love for you.
It is unbelievable that you are gone, but our hearts feel
the emptiness your passing has left us with.
Always thinking of you throughout life, now doing the same
Minds can't grasp the definition of your passing, yet we
know you are beyond us.
Our hearts hold the key to your memory and we will pass
along all we know about you to our children - planting your
memory in their minds of family.
Tradition, times together, pictures of us, will hold up a
mirror of time reflecting us always together.
Family is rooted in this way, beyond barriers of time and
space in death's embrace.
Forever, our love will keep us together in tears of love,
joy and the happiness we once knew in life.
