Oh Father, My Father

Close your eyes and feel me near
keep me inside your heart
let me live in your soul
you see through tears
the things we will never do
running across the fields of my youth
games never played
but it is not gone
those dreams you hold so close
for I live on in every child you see
little ones standing a lone... lost
or laughing in a playground
swinging so high
touching the tree tops
that is I
wanting just to love
feel my happiness in the song of a bird
see my sorrow in mother
hold her close forever
feeling your strength
for there will be one to come behind me
whether through God's grace or
from a different calling
a child chosen through His hand.
For in darkness, a light will appear
even if it is just the dawn
signaling a new beginning
and as you gather my mother to your heart
release your tears
let the healing begin
and discover that I am here
in your dreams
in your tomorrows
Every rainbow is the path home
and if you should stumble
I am the wings that shall lift you
Love, your child

Mark, I am so blessed to be your cousin. You are my hero and my inspiration. We were so close when we were younger and as we got older we only saw each other during the holidays and then I moved. I always thought of you and am so happy that we got to spend one more Christmas together. You will always be my little cousin and I will always love you. You always wanted to change lives and make sure everyone is happy. Well, you accomplished all of that and you will continue to do that in heaven. You are our angel and always will be. I love you now and forever. Rest peacefully Cuz, my angel.

Mark, to say that I’m going to miss you is an understatement. You brought an endless amount of laughter, love, and energy to everyone you know. You were living proof that only the good die young. Although we feel the pain, hurt and sorrow brought on by your passing; I know heaven is a great place because you are there.

What can I say about Mark that others have not. I admired his optimisim, his candor, and his genuine soul which was like no other I met. I can honestly say that he knew how to work a room!! Mark had a character that I have never seen in a man of his young age. His expressions were priceless and would make you laugh on a cloudy day. Although I was not able to spend as much time with him as others did, he did leave a lasting impression on me that I will never forget. Mark and I could talk about anything and everything and he would always make me laugh...just by saying "yeeeaaaahhhh". Not a day went by that he didnt pop over and visit me in my section at work and he was a welcomed presence to us all. I will truly miss Mark.. and I will never forget him. He will always be in my heart.
