In Memory Poem

I wrote this poem for my late Uncle Cameron...Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. This is my original date 2 years ago, and only now am I ready to share it...Please enjoy and respect it kindly. Much Mahalos from an Island girl in Hawaii.

Since the day the skies turned gray
It was then I thought of you
As the rain pondered upon my tin-roof
Tears from my eyes shown how much I missed you

It never crossed my mind that I'd feel so blue
That on that very day I'd lose a piece of you inside of me
Who would have thought it'd be you to leave so soon?
Leaving behind the ones you love and memories

I'm sure you've gone to a better place
Garnished with angel wings, halo, harps and other things
You're probably looking down from heaven up above
Sending out smiles with days of sunshine and showers of love

Not a day that goes by I don't think of you
How I wished you were still here to stay
All the fun and times we spent together
Your laughter and your smile you've always gave

These are moments I cherish and hold so dear
Moments spent and everlasting memories
Even though it's hard to accept the fact that you're gone
The distance between you and me are only...
Only temporarily!
