In Memory of a dimpled boy





In loving honor of

Ethan Chery Michael McCormick

4-14-1991 to 4-11-2009




A BITTER LOVE
A LOVE UNSEEN
BEGAN ONE DAY
AMIDST SOME POEMS
AND MYSPACE PLAY
A LOVE UNKNOWN
TOO SOON WOULD BE
A PART OF LIFE
A PART OF ME
A LOVE SO YOUNG
LIVING QUICKLY
MEETING MANY
MY DIMPLED BOY
A LOVE SO STRONG
GIVEN NOT LIGHTLY
A BROTHERS BOND
TO ONE OF MANY
A LOVE DEEPENED
WITH WORDS UNFOLD
WHAT WONDER AHEAD
AND TALES UNTOLD
A LOVE MATURED
BEYOND IT'S YEAR
SHIDING BEHIND
LAUGHTERS COLD TEARS
A LOVE DENIED
TO ONE SO YOUNG
DARKNESS LEAVING
NO SONG UNSUNG
A LOVE I FELTRIGHT
FROM THE START
WITH ALL MY SOUL
AND ALL MY HEART
A LOVE FOR YOU
ETHAN MY DEAR
MY HEART HEARD YOU
WHISPER IN MY EAR
A LOVE SHORT LIVED
DENIED BY DEATH
UNTIL IT TOOK
HIS FINAL BREATH
A BITTER LOVE
CUT SHORT TOO SOON
I'LL LAUGH FOR YOU
AND WATCH THE MOON
A LOVE SO TRUE
GOD'S GIFT TO YOU
ETERNAL LIFE
AND HEALTH ENSUE
A LOVE DIVINE
AS YOU STAND TALL
AND LAUGH YOURSELF
OFF HEAVENS WALL
Ethan, I met you, and I quickly grew to love you, and I will carry you always in my heart right beside Ian.
You keep laughing….”to infinity and beyond”!....

I am blessed to have known you, to have shared part of your life and to have been your friend. I was shown many blessings and taught something by you, even so young, you gave me hope many times. I can only hope and pray that I, if even only for a mere moment, showed you what a mother’s love feels like, because with you, I was able to feel what being a mother of a teen aged boy felt like! And I chery’sh that! Rest in peace my “adopted” son. You will be missed and you have carried another piece of my heart away with you. When I feel it missing, I will smile and share a joke with someone for you.....

I CAN’T SEE THROUGH THE TEARS
LIFE GIVES AND LIFE TAKES AWAY
I SEE CLEARLY MOST OF THE DAY
WHEN LIFE IS HARD AND JUST NOT RIGHT
I CANT SEE THROUGH THE TEARS
WHEN THINGS ARE NOT AS THEY SHOULD BE
WHEN TROUBLED TIMES COME CALLING
IN THOSE TIMES OF SORROW AND GRIEF
I CAN’T SEE THROUGH THE TEARS
FATE SEALS NOT THE SANDS OF TIME
THE FATHER ABOVE IS REASON AND RHYME
WHEN DARKNESS FALLS UPON BEATING HEARTS
I CAN’T SEE THROUGH THE TEARS
THE LOSS OF FRIEND OR FAMILY DEAR
OF A GENTLE SOUL PASSING, WE NOW HEAR
THE OLD SHOULD NOT OUTLIVE THE YOUNG
I CAN’T SEE THROUGH THE TEARS
MY BOYS HAVE GONE BUT LIVED THEIR SEASON
FOR THEIR YOUTHFUL DEMISE I CAN FIND NO REASON
THEIR JOB FOR THE KINGDOM NOW COMPLETE
I CAN’T SEE THROUGH THE TEARS
WITH CLOUDED THOUGHTS AND TEAR STREAKED CHEEKS
THE BROTHERS WILL YET MOURN FOR WEEKS
THE SISTERS LOVE WILL CARRY THEM THROUGH
I CAN’T SEE THROUGH THE TEARS
