For My Brother Robert - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

February 25,2009

God blessed your life, we know He did.
Your hopes and dreams were all fulfilled.

You did your best and gave your all,
And with honest work, you stood tall.

You loved with all your heart and life,
Your children and your faithful wife.

The best, a husband you had been,
And an even best father, we all have seen.

Now that you're fighting your last battle,
I pray God hold you in this hurdle.

Each day your strength has ebbed away,
But may He comfort you today.

May God in His great loving kindness,
Ease your pain, with mercy bless-

Your life and soul held here and after,
Embraced eternal by God our Father.

I love my dear brother.

(Robert Buhain Sr. November 18,1951 - March 14,2009)

    What a precious tribute to the brother you loved so much.
    I pray he is in a better place where cancer has been replaced
    with new strength and eternal youth. My family has also been
    hit hard by cancer. Love and Blessings, Rob
