The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone;

For part of us went with you, the day

God Called You Home.

You left us peaceful memories,

Your love still our guide; and though we cannot see you,

You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same;

but as God calls us one by one,

the chain will link again.

In loving Memory of my son

Something will remind me

I never know just when

It might be something someone says

and it all comes back again.


The times we all spent together

The happiness, the fun

Once again, I feel the pain

Of life without my son & brother


It's said that time is a healer

I'm not sure this is true

There's not a day goes by

That I don't cry for you
