A Grand Man

                I always thought you were like Pan
                Ageless,would never die
                But Deaths kiss came so swiftly
                You left us high and dry.
                No last farewell
                No parting words
                No comfort or compassion
                Death reared his head
                And covered you
                In a cold and heartless fashion.
                The hands of time turn so slowly
                But our minds spin out of control
                Replaying over and over again
                The departure of your soul
                But the tears we cry will not resurrect you
                Back to this cruel, hard place
                All we have are our thoughts of you
                And the memory of your face.

               (for my Cousin Ronnie Meese, tragically killed 07/27/11,aged 58)
