We Miss You - Poem by Ashley Ruckman

Cool early summer, but almost fall. There was no sun shining, no light at all. Not the sky, but friends and family's eyes pouring down rain. No joy in their hearts, they were stricken down with pain.
The truth seemed like a cruel, unnecesisary lie. There was hardly a pausing moment where we didn't cry. It was unbelieveable, it didn't seem real. We thought we'd all die from the pain that we could feel.
Thinking about what happened, hoping it not to be true. Reminising about all the times we had with you. We thought about your odd humor, the way you used to smile. How you'd make us laugh, and your crazy sense of style.
We hope you knew how much we loved you, and we always will. Eventhough time will pass, our hearts will be broken still. Such a great father, a son, an uncle, a friend, a cousin and brother, to you in Heaven, our love we'll send.
It's hard to believe that now you're free, and have left us all behind. Leaving was not like you, you were much too kind. Some of us said good bye, some of us never got the chance. To her, you were a great husband, she'll forever want to kiss you. Just know that forever, we'll miss you.
