A beautiful poem

So I wanted to share a beautiful poem my cousin wrote and posted on my Facebook wall last night.  He said he was inspired by my post on Friday regarding the Rainbow's heartbeat.  I said "169 beats per minute...music to my ears."  And this is what he wrote:

The Sweetest Sound

That sound of your heart, So strong and so true
The beats of your heart, so precious and so pure
That song of sweet love, it echoes in my thoughts
As you grow and you weave, inside my heart and my soul

These struggles to let go of the lost sounds of the past
You offer me a chance to live life with a plan
That song of sweet love allows me to smile
Free of the doubts of those lost sounds of the past

I can let go of the fears and embrace,
my life with the years of your sweet, beautiful face
That song of sweet love if there was ever a doubt,
It opens my heart to that sweetest sound



Can you say tears?  Distance and time has made no difference to him.  Being a divorced kid, most of my family on my dad's side lives in California.  This particular cousin and I have only met once that I remember.  Yet, he has been one of the most caring, supportive individuals throughout this loss and been one of the biggest cheerleaders since we announced we were expecting #2.  One of these days, I hope to make it back to the West Coast.  It's been far too long since I've seen my family.
