Stan

So many words, so many truths.
Wish I could have, wish I should have, wish I might have…
known you better.

You chose your journey –
A path we couldn’t follow.
Now, we are hollow.

Your absence is a presence profound
A truth newly found,
questions abound
For family, friends, kith and kin

We shall mourn and we shall grieve,
with a heartfelt prayer upon lips: may the memory of you never leave.
And a prayer upon heart: may you find divine, eternal peace.
