Ode to one lost too soon

Ode to one lost too soon

Three years ago I gathered with my family

On that day we remembered a man whose life was filled with riches

Almost living a century, he helped build his country, supported his family, and lead a full life

On that day there was no sadness for one who lived so much

Today my thoughts turn to someone I will never meet

But whose passing fills me sadness because someone so young shouldn’t be taken

But whose passing serves as a reminder that life is fragile despite what we think

But who passing ends the story which could have unfolded in his eyes
