1. I was 13, as I am now. My uncle got cancer. The worst disease ever. And it just got worse and worse. And as I said, It took him over, leaving not a single breath. I miss him terribly and this can only make me stronger.
I Will Never Forget

Easy come, and easy go
It’s very hard to let you go
Don’t think I won’t remember
Because I will never forget
It was hard to see you in that bed
The look of sadness and my dread
But you looked so peaceful, I will admit
You thought you were strong
We knew you were
But it got you
It took you over
It ate you alive
There was not a single breath
It took them all,
Not a single one left
You were so weak
We kept you strong,
So we thought,
But we were wrong
We love you and miss you
We wish you were here
But we can have only memories
And don’t you think I won’t remember
I will never forget
2. This poem is dedicated to my uncle who passed in 08 me and him were so close he’s my hero. i miss him so much..

we waited as if it was an eternity,
growing up with him every single
day or every other day wishing and
hoping that he would one day get
up and joke and play around with
everyone. like he always did. but he
knew it was his time, he knew the
angels were calling for him. a few
friendly faces to greet him through the
heavenly gates. so he lifted high and floated
high with no pain, God set him free of his pain.
3. Poem From Niece Who Misses Her Uncle
A story of a girl who misses her loving uncle! And she just can’t let go how much she misses him!!! In loving memory of Greg Allen Maxwel December 25, 1966 To August 7, 2006
I Miss You Uncle
I miss you tomorrow
I miss you today
a cry in sorrow
for they all say
I’m a bad person for not going to your wake
it was too hard
I couldn’t ride in the car
to see your dead body
laying so blank
“it’s not you” I cried “it’s a mistake”
you were too good
you were too great
I’ll miss you forever
and I can’t wait
to see you again
without that faith
I miss you so much
I can’t wait to touch your hand again
4. My Hero My Uncle
© Maddie N. Miller
I once knew a man sweet and kind,
and I found that empty place in my heart I couldn’t find.
He was a police officer nice and sweet.
He was so special he swept me off my feet.
Then one day he got shot,
but he had won the battle he had fought.
I was very sad he had gone.
But he had to do what he had done.
He helped people here and there,
he deserved the badge he would wear,
and this man who was so nice was my Uncle John who paid the price.
It was all over the news the next day everyone in my family just wasn’t the same way.
My whole family was very sad.
Because he was killed in a drug bust gone bad.
He devoted his whole life to fighting drugs.
And for this he deserves more than a million hugs.
He is my hero that is true,
he has been my hero through and through.
I loved him with all my heart,
I knew he was a police officer from the start.
5. My uncle was my world he was like a father to me, he show me so much things in life and now he is gone is like my whole world is upsided down.
When The It Was Tomorrow

When I saw you smiling and talking it was yesterday
When you were taken it was today
But in my heart you will always stay
Your voice, your wisdom, your speech and your right so free
Not knowing all that you could have been
Taken away like a tide ashore
Now you are death, I regret never saying how much I love you so
Oh how I cry my self to sleep at night and praying that God keep your soul at peace
Now and forever more you will always be the one I adore
Just your voice makes me want to be better
Now you in that heavenly place
On the wings of the heavenly dove soaring so high above
It has been one year since your life came to its early departure
Some times I wonder if it happens for a reason
God has a purpose for all of us
That’s why he took you so suddenly
Although I will never understand why so soon
Death is something we have to live with
Death has no back or front door
When the time comes we all have to endure
So rest in peace till we meet
In eternity you will safely be
6. I knew many men in my life but my uncle was not only my uncle but also a best friend who will always be in my heart till the day I join him in heaven
I said see you tomorrow.
Well, I’m still waiting for tomorrow to come.
Death is like an endless problem.
There is no sum.
Your days have ended.
Mine still continue to go
Even though I hope and pray
Never again to you I will say hello
You told me you were gonna die
I thought it was a joke
A little game
Now nothing will ever be the same
I’m still waiting for tomorrow…….
