GOODNIGHT, POET WARRIOR

Tears fall into sadness and grief
You have come to a much untimely end
Though we never met face to face
I am proud to have called you friend

Sometimes a person passes by
And in doing so brings light
And then just as suddenly
Are taken into the eternal night

We were truly blessed and awed
By these few moments of your time
You wrote of battle and war crime
You told of it in such sad rhyme

You were carried from earth’s place
By angels to be seated in God’s Grace
A sad good bye is all we can say
We are thankful you passed our way

In this life I never saw your face
But you wrote words
That transcends time and space
I will remember you
I shall know you in another place
