A Poem Written by Cpl Megeney's cousin Anna
from British Columbia:
A Son.
A brother.
A friend.
A Soldier
….An Angel.

Another star shines down tonight
A light so bright from Heaven,
The Good Lord called an Angel home,
It was our beloved Kevin.

The pain we feel is endless
Our tears may never dry.
A young man so full of promise,
Why did he have to die.

He had so much to live for,
He stood so tall and proud.
That special kind of gentleman
Who stood far above the crowd.

And now he stands in Heaven
With the Lord so high above,
Smiling, watching over us
With a heart so full of love.

So we must stand here proudly
And wipe our tears away.
And remember every little thing
Until we meet him again one day.

He will wait for us in Heaven,
Watching from above.
When our turn comes he’ll be there
With open arms of love.

God Bless you Kevin.
.. Anna
