A chorus less a single voice,
an angel taken from our lives,
his song cut short without a choice,
these thoughts of him all that survives,

An empty space where once was light,
a hole that cannot be refilled,
that spark put out without a fight,
a life that we must now rebuild,

A treasure lost but for his worth,
a soul reclaimed before his time,
to rest in peace within the earth.
to sleep and dream that life sublime.

  1. Excellent- you can share them in the Discussions section, if you want to. There's a bit called "Who else writes poetry?"- feel free to post your work there.
