A Long Journeys End

Simplicity was best
And now as you hover by my chest
I would like to remind you that you’re here
In my heart 
Forever near

I don’t know how 
But you touched me
And as you take the final bow
I would like to thank you

I saw you vaguely
But I saw you truly
Kind, gentle, always there
Just to talk about everything
And also nothing

The battle was hard fought
And after all the pain
Your serenity that was sought
You have obtained

So may God bless your travels
Into his gates
And may he watch over you
And keep you safe at best
For now you may finally rest.

-To Katie, a very dear friend that though I may not have spent as much time with you as
some I saw you as the great person you were. May god keep you by him and safe in heaven.
---Love Eternally Matthew R Pawlak
