Still With Us

I wrote this 2-12-09 one of many about my my nephew Camron Paul Wilson, nickname, Blue. He was 16 when he died in a tragic accident. R.I.P  Blue 11-22-87 - 7-27-2005



 Still with us, your legacy, we boast about the kind of man you would be.
 Still with us, wonderful memories we'll have forever
stop missing and loving you, never.
 Still with us, the sound of your voice
the brightness of your smile, what I wouldn't give
for us to hang out for a while.
 Still with us, the courage you had
you bestow it upon us to keep us going through all the bad
 Still with us, pain and tears
we only had you for sixteen years
  Still with us, the knowledge of what a true soul you were
In this world, you always knew your place
such a man, that before you left, you gave us a saving grace
  The Lord took you and gave us another little boy
we know it was you, trying to give us a little joy
  Still with us, is you
every day and every where
I know, because I can feel you there
  When I need you 
you come, I see your face
I can hear your voice
You guide me to the right choice
  I can see your smile and your hands I can feel
Now I'm a believer, because your spirit is so real
  What an honor to have you as our own
Can't wait to see you when I come home

    Oh - what a very very lucky young man he was to have someone like you to love him forever. How I would be in Heaven to think that anyone could every feel like this about me when I am gone from this world. I feel sure that his spirit, living on as it does in your heart, must surely rejoice in these wonderful words. Lucky young man!!!!!
