When My Cousin Died

By: Duane Bourman


When I heard about my cousins death

I was shocked

The funeral was on Saturday

I got there at 2 o’clock

I went to see my aunt

She was in tears hugging me like crazy

When we got in the funeral home

I saw my cousin it was his sister

She gave me a hug

The funeral went on for a while

Then the pastor ask if anyone wanted to talk

I said I would so I went on talking about the good times

What we had, my cousin and I went to town when he was

At my house, we had a blast

Then I said I was done so I went and sat down and

The pastor said that was good
