Sometimes I think of you
When the sky is bright and very blue
When the stars shine down and smile
I think of yours I saw for a little while.
You are the one who showed such kindness; gentleness; love
You lived life your way but still knew the creator up above.
I know through your life some may have judged or shown hate
But clearly nothing disgusting, ugly or evil does god create.
You treated your little niece with undying love and giving
When I’m lonely you’re the person I’m most missing.
I’m so thankful I had you as mine for eight years
and when you went me and mom shed so many tears.
I didn’t know where you went or what to do
All I knew is you were my Haru and I missed you.
I had a bunny you left for me
I named him after you, see-
When I was small I’d talk to him
and pretend your spirit was within.
Sometimes to this day I swear I felt something back
All I know is though you are far, your love I’ll never lack.
Of all the people I’ve met through my life journey
you taught me to love, not judge and give endlessly.
Life is short and I never know when I’ll see you
but I know you’re up there; beautiful like the sky is blue.
Whenever I’m tired or whenever I’m scared,
I won’t forget that you’re always still there.
