Have you ever know a person

So kind, polite, and happy?

This boy was all of that

His parents named him Riley


Riley liked to golf and play football

 sports of every kind

He loved his motorcycle most

He always enjoyed a fun time


He was a great friend, even with his sister

Not many sisters have that in a brother

They had a special bond, those two

It was the same for his father and mother


He brought joy into the world of many

Riley had a special touch

To know him was to love him

And to lose him hurts so much


One day at a time is all we can do

To survive this loss and pain

Riley, we love you, we miss you

Our lives will never be the same
