Beloved Husband, Dad, Brother and Uncle




MY BEST FRIEND... MY BROTHER

Just to hear you laugh
or even to hear you cry
not much I can
now that those days are going by

You were my protector always by my side
I thought you'd always be there
you watch me become a man

Never once did you let me down
you were always there
to comfort my frowns

So many dreams you had to achieve
so tell me why its fair for you to leave

My emotions are of anger and
of sorrow
cause I know you won't be there tomorrow

But a bond like ours can't be broken
I'll hold it in my heart as our token

I couldn't be prouder
to have a brother like you
and I know in my heart you
feel the same too

I do feel day by day
you'll be with me in your
own special way

I know I'll see you someday
in the end

You aren't just my brother
you're my best friend
I love you for ever

Missing you. -Victor Boy

To Those I Love...
And Those Who Love Me


When I am gone, release me, let me go,
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I traveled on alone.

So grieve a while for if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.

I won't be far away, for life gones on,
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near,
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say,
"Welcome Home"
