0187 For Michael [01 April 1998]

Author’s note: A friend of the family passed and this was written in his honor.


Forgive my tears,
for they are of sorrow,
of doubtless joy.
Do not condemn them,
for in them
the future I do see.
Though we may weep
a great man’s death,
he shall live on forever.
The greatest hero
shall be remembered
only in his feats.
The greatest man
shall be remembered
for his love he gave.
Do not weep for his death,
for live on shall he,
weep for the loss of friendship.
