My Cousin

People never knew just how much he meant to me and you
They knew him by name, but it's still not the same

His eyes so bright, his smile so wide
We always let him know we were right there by his side

Now he's gone from me and you
Now we have no reason to be blue

We loved him, he loved us
And we have to try not to fuss

He said goodbye and gave you a kiss
Now all we can do is reminis

Why does God take the best to love
Up to that great big world up above?

His memory will never leave
His kind and gentle smile will always be seen

Never forget him, never let him leave your mind
Tell him you love him, just one more time.
