[Poetry] Essence

  • Author:

There was laughter and drama

and music and art.

There was dancing and puzzles

and love from the heart.

There was friendship and flowers

and all that you knew.

These disparate things

were the essence of you.

A shadow crept inwards

and clouded your days.

And slowly by slowly

your life was a haze.

Denser and darker

the fog became night

And then it was over

and everywhere, light.

And now no restrictions

you can fly high.

Use all your talents

reach for the sky.

We'll never forget you

we'll be not apart.

Now and forever

you'll live in our hearts.
