The Fourth of July

Sparkles in small hands
Big booms wake up the night
Sulphur smell in the air
Your favorite holiday

Driveway is a mess
Colors light up the dark sky
Fog of smoke lingers
Your favorite holiday

From the age of two
You would wait for the day
Dream for the right night
Your favorite holiday

For the first time ever
This day is for tears
You won't be here
Your favorite Holiday.

Nothing in this world is forever; not even "goodbye." Rest easy, old friend. Until we meet again.

My Shawn
In all of us there are many people. At a time like this there are many stories passed around about the person. I want you to know about my Shawn. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father and friend. He was my baby, all six foot two of him. He was named after each one of his brothers. He loved his brothers and sisters unconditionally. As a child he loved coming from a big family. He began school at St Catherine of Siena in Hammond where he met his lifelong best friend. He didn't do anything important in his life without Joe if he could help it. I was afraid that his younger son Parker would not get Baptist because if Joe couldn't be his Godfather in Shawn's opinion he did not need one. When he married his beloved Brandy Joe had to be a part of it.
Shawn played every sport there was in school. Sometimes he would put on a football uniform after a soccer game in the car going to the next field. When his son Shawn Jr. played sports he was one proud Papa. Then his princess, Sara was born. She started out being his bril (boy-girl) but quickly became his princess, so much so she thought it was her name. Before Parker was born Shawn spend hours on end researching names for the perfect one for his youngest son. It had to be a name that would be worthy of a doctor or lawyer or something great.
Shawn was persistent. For most people it takes 4 years to graduate high school. It took Shawn 4 years and three summers to finish Andrean High school. But he never gave up. He was afraid of high places but he persisted on becoming an ironworker.
Shawn was the friend that would come out in the middle of the night to rescue you. He was the uncle who would travel by train and bus to bring his niece and her baby's home. He was the brother who never gave up on you. He was the son who loved his stepfather, brother to his stepbrother, and loved his in-laws and made them his family. Most importantly he was Dad to his three children and his stepson. He will always live in my heart as my baby.
I am sure that most of you knew Shawn in a different way. However, this was my Shawn.
