In these days
your color visits
I see you then
delight implicit
shoulder squeeze
I know it’s you
shock of black
and vital hue
tanned and healthy
sparkled grin
open laugh
to let all in
and spoken heart
“don’t forget
I love you” cards
your presence made
for merriment
your pallor shined
of sentiment
your Irish eyes
so dark and kind
affection lined
beneath a sea
of shooting stars
gentle jokes
and rides in cars
your color visits
my darling friend
I miss you then
again again
no more battle
no more pain
only living
life to gain
A friend remarked,
of losing you,
I know it’s true.


So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10

And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” -Luke 23:43
