    Uncle charlie this poem I found and thought of you
    My uncle
    I came into this life
    You held me in your arms
    You kept me safe
    So no one could harm

    You taught me values
    Lessons in life I would learn
    Youtaught me to respect
    I gave you love in return

    You have always been in my life
    Through thick and thin
    And now my lonely journey
    Without you will begin

    For you were my hero
    Forever and a day
    You will always remain that hero
    Till I meet you again someday

    I will embrace you in my arms
    And hold on tight
    I will stand by yourside
    And you will never leave my sight

    I miss you so much
    The pain does not ease
    I pray you are happy
    And finally at peace
