For you, Laura Loo
For we are but a vapor soon to be invisible
floating onward past earth’s antipodal
Of the things, one could say in times of mourning,
It could be said, "one day we will see them again"
or "times like these come every now and then"
but whether death strikes with or without warning
you can't go wrong with words that are warming
For death is a defeated opponent in the game of life, amen
Even though this is
a poetry soup contest
forget not, humanity
With much care, I send
my condolences to you
Blessings, poet Laura Loo
