My Cousin, My Angel, My Best Friend


Published: January 14, 2021

I put a letter in your coffin,
One only you could ever read.
I said how much I love you.
It shows you how I plead.

How I wish you were still here,
And how I'm broken now that you're gone.
I cry and weep and beg,
I want back my cousin John.

But I know you're not coming back,
And it repeatedly breaks my heart.
There are a thousand things I want to say;
I've thought of a thousand more since we've been apart.

You were gone so suddenly.
We never had any warning.
I'll never forget how my heart broke
When I heard the news that morning.

They told me how you were gone,
But their words I refused to believe.
I said you'd never leave us;
I didn't know how to grieve.

You had so much life left to live;
I wish it were all pretend.
But my heart knows I've lost you
My cousin, my angel, my Best Friend
