Family is my treasure,

yet another jewel I've lost.

So small but ever so precious;

buried deep within the Earth now.

Irreplaceable in my heart.

Excellent short poem. The last line is so true.... every "thing" can be replaced except those we love... I would stop time if I could so that I would never have to lose a "jewel". 

Perfection; my greatest strength and weakness.

This poem is beautiful.

I am a man with one distinguishing manner. I view life as a nonstop roll by circus. Whatever my senses signal to my brain, it is received as humor.

Thank you both for your comments. 

With the recent loss of a dear child relative, I truly feel as if there is a gaping hole inside me that nothing can fill. His time here was brief but made a great impact and will never be forgotten. I'll hold him forever in my heart. He was simply too beautiful and precious a jewel for this Earth.

Sorry to hear of your loss. It's always difficult to lose someone young.
