On Your Way

When You Took Your First Steps Into The Heavenly Light
At 7:14 That Monday Night,
You Arrived
July 18th Of 2006

Today The Family Gathers At The Blackburn’s Pond
While Trying To Remain Collected And Calm,
With Tears In Our Eyes And Ashes In Hand
We Remember A Great And Honorable Man

A Remarkable Friend, Nephew And Cousin
Extraordinary Grandpa, Father And Husband,
An Amazing Uncle, Brother And Son
Wow, All This Wrapped Up Into ONE

Although We Are Lost, Bewildered And Sad
We Know You’re At Peace And With Your Dad
