Your short blonde hair, mischievous smile
Were taken away from us in such a short while.
That summer day I remember so clear
A prognosis we heard that all of us feared.
You proved us wrong by bouncing back
Showing us that cancer was going to have to try harder than that.
Through treatments and procedures you stayed so bright
Your 10 year old body would put up the fight
Your willpower and spirit never regressed
Even though this tumor was likely to progress
Your true courage and strength will always be remembered
Even when you had to surrender
You are our hope, our faith, our light
A little hero who put in all his might
Your love will last forever, let that be clear
Your memory in our hearts will always be held dear
Even though it’s time to say goodbye
You will always be our angel up in the sky.
