A Loved One
It’s been 3 years that you were taken away
But it’s like more and you never said goodbye
The joy and laughter that we shared
And the memories that keep me going
And I can’t understand why
But it was God’s plan
That you were taken at such a young age
You had friends and loved ones
How they miss you too
But you have made a journey
That everybody would love to go
And you have a Brother-Papaw-Great Aunt
To be with you now
I want to be with you again Dustin


A million times I’ll miss you,
A million times I’ll cry
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still,
In my heart you hold a place,
No other one can fill.
Loved and missed every day,
