4 letters made you,
but they never contained who you were
How could they?
4 letters combined in perfect harmony
You were a poem before your first step
and held the world in your heart
the gift you gave to every path you crossed
was one of belonging
you made every life special,
be they man, woman, or child
it didn’t matter if they’d known you 5 minutes
you completed them.
As only you could.
your charisma was magnetic
Once people entered your orbit they were
you brought out the good in everyone
And no matter who met you,
no matter how distant the time between
you were never forgotten
Who can forget a shooting star?
The pain, the pain
it cuts deep, my friend
the world is a bitter bitter pill to swallow
without your glow.
and a world full of compassion
you walked and hearts bloomed in your presence.
we all are better for knowing you.
I miss you, my friend. I cannot believe you’re gone.
May you ride the eternal wave in peace and harmony
may your spirit fly higher than it ever did here
and where ever you may be
may there be others who welcome you in with the kindness
that you showed all who knew you.
knew your name.
and a life blown out way too early, but one that will shine on for eternity.
