It may have been 10 years ago.
But being an unsolved case, and being my cousin.
it still haunts me. Especially with my own kids.
Today I wrote this.

10 Years Today.

10 years today
you left our side
10 years ago
with no goodbye
so many tears
have shed our eyes
so many years
since you have died

today's pain
is still the same
today's pain
still grows inside
today's pain
with thoughts of you
today's pain
with memories true

we miss you now
we missed you then
we wished that we
could see you again
but you are gone
and all that remains
are memories and
tears and pains.
