Missing Patrick

Patrick____________Audrey____________Patty



I Miss You

It's been a while

since I've heard your voice ~

that warm comforting voice,

always offering

helpful words of wisdom.

You always seem to know

so much more about life than I ~

and just what to say

to make the world seem like

it's on our side.

I miss you

when something really good happens,

because you're the one

I want to share it with.

I miss you

when something is troubling me,

because you're the one

who understands me so well.

I miss you

when I laugh and when I cry,

because you're the one

who makes the laughter grow

and the tears disappear.

I can't believe

how much I miss you.



To our dear brother, Patrick.

With all of our love.

Patty and Audrey

It is such a perfect narrative. There is nothing more to say. Love, your sister.

Hi Audrey, This was a very lovely tribute to your brother and your words fit so well for me for my grandson. It has been 4 years ago this month that we lost Kevin and I still miss him deeply.

On another note how was your trip?
