    **** cuz it's been a whole month since I seen you
    We were out for a family gathering but I only seen you passing through
    No hello. no goodbyes
    So I cry
    Why?
    So miserable to think when I saw you again I would be over your casket
    The situation is so hectic
    I want to pull you back but I'm reluctant
    You're at peace now, you had to go when God beckon
    But knowing that does not stop these cries in this church I reckon
    It does not stop us from thinking you were taken so early
    Your life was ended so suddenly
    Death is never happy because that loved one will never be seen again daily
    At least not physically
    Maybe mentally
    But it's not the same and it hurts me critically
    To know my beloved cousin Erika was taken so brutally
    And fatally
    It messing with me mentally
    To know one day you're here and the next you're gone
    But what hurts the most is I was not there for you your last day, i was at home
    Our relationship wasn't the tightest but you're family and you always come before any other one
    I never got to say goodbye before you were gone
    I can only now think of you when I'm alone
    And now it's killing me because I didn't know you enough
    I didn't your favorite color and I never bought your little boy stuff
    Hearing the news about your death tore me down but it taught me something too
    It taught me that family is too near and dear for you to waste time apart boo
    You gotta spend all the time you can together because you never know when they will end up like you
    I love you cuz, and I will sincerely miss you too
    Thank you cuz for teaching me something that I should have BEEN knew
    Save a spot up there for me and the whole family too
    I know when I see you again I will probably spend ALL MY TIME WITH YOU

    Your cousin knew how you felt, even though in your mind, what you did just wasn't enough. So many things happen in life, that we can't make heads nor tails of. You have a knack of being able to write about your pain so clearly...not everyone has that gift. I'm sorry for your loss lil sis.
