Poem By Debbie Peterson
You were like my big brother
When we were growing up.
You were our weekend babysitter
Who always made it fun.
You took us to the movies
And hid us in your trunk,
You would do most anything
So you could save a buck.
I will always remember your laugh,
And your unmistakable grin.
Not only were you my uncle,
I always considered you a friend.
You took me for rides on your motorcycle
And sled riding in the snow.
Those memories will last forever,
Where did that time go?
I remember the smile on your face
The day you had your son.
Thinking ahead of the times you would have
Throwing a ball and having fun.
And when you had your daughter,
You had a twinkle in your eye.
Who would've thought such a small child
Could make a grown man cry.
So I thank you for the memories
I will hold deep in my heart.
I will keep them tucked away for now,
Until we're no longer apart.
