1. Remember

Remember he loved you more than you know

Remember he loves you even after he goes

Remember his last smile to you;

It was the brightest of them all

It's all part of what we remember of him

Forget that he had to go

Forget that one no-show

Forget when he yelled at you;

He really just didn't want to lose you

It's all part of what we remember of him

Forget the days after that became just a blur

Forget when his words started to slur

Forget when he fell below the dirt;

Just remember that was just his body, because his soul is still in our heads

It's all part of what we remember of him

Know that he's still by your side

Know what he would say as you stride

Know that he's still watching over you;

Trying to tell you what's good and bad

It's all part of what we remember of him

Know he's in a brighter place

Know it'll be even brighter when he sees your face

Know that he's excited for the great things you've done;

Even though he can't tell you in person

It's all part of what we remember of him

Last few days were the worst of all

Last few moments is when you tell him it all

Last time you see his fresh face;

Picture it fresher when you see him again

It's all part of what we remember of him

Last of all, don't let him get lost

Last who remember is who loved him the best

Last to tell him "It'll be okay;"

Really meant " I don't know how much I can take."

It's all part of what we remember of him

I love you so much and there's so little that this poem says and I wish it could have said it all, but there aren't enough words in the dictionary to say what I wish I could. He's up above watching us and whether it's something good or bad, he'll be trying to tell you something. So don't shut him out, don't numb the pain, embrace it, because that's what really helps. If his heart was still beating, if he was still physically walking beside us, we would probably be a lot different, but a good different. So let's be that good different, because that is what he would want, what he does want. Just never forget that.
