Death (For my friend Robert)


If I could hold that moment forever
When laughter spilled in every word
Poured and filled the cracks so empty
Touched this bitter earth.
When time has ceased its hold on me
Donít bring the ending of a life to me
It is just a flower or just the hour
Or the moment when I was me.
Donít curse the earth upon me stacked
In my casket of delusion packed
Dream softly when you go to sleep
Remember me when your sunshine weeps.


Author's Notes:
He would have been 48 had he lived. It was his birthday a few days ago and i have been thinking about him and the talks we had on so many subjects. He was so lost inside himself. He was the inspiration of many poems. The last line of this poem was the very last line of a letter he wrote to me and the last time i ever talked to him.

Oh how very sad to loose someone is the very hardest thing in the world to go on is another that empty void just lingers on I am so sorry for your loss. A very beautiful poem for your friend, memories seem to keep them alive somehow. This just pulls at the heart strings

One of the toughest things in life is to lose a close friend this way, but we must resolve to go on with what we have left and always let the good memories stay safe within us. My condolances go to you Steve.

I'm sorry for your loss John but I'm sure Robert valued your friendship, these losses we suffer all leave a void in our hearts that take time to fill, but that day will come and we can look upon them with affection rather then sadness may that day come soon for you my friend~Graham.

This poem speaks of treasured times and bittersweet memories. Robert said so much with one simple line, as if he likened himself to sadness. He may have been a troubled soul but he was one that was dearly loved. Very caring post John, I'm sorry for your loss.
