Following Reuben’s death, brother Harry wrote this beautiful poem to remember him by (with a little help from his dad). This is 'Reubear'.
Reu Reu, you weren’t like other children,
You would need a lot of love and care,
and in us you found love enough to spare.
We were delighted we had our own Reubear.
Much to outsiders’ surprise,
You haven’t been a challenge
but a blessing in disguise.
Your hard earned smiles and chuckles are pleasures you impart,
and will forever be etched upon our hearts.
We raced around the moon,
swam, played and laughed like we were in a cartoon.
We would often sprawl on the sofa in a huddle,
we will forever cherish our cuddle.
We are proud that we have been chosen,
to help you live and grow,
we loved you more than you will ever know.
You’re our precious gift from Heaven,
our treasure from above,
Now you’re with Olivia, another special dove.
You both taught us many things,
but most of all - True Love.
Love from, Harry (8) and Daddy x
