I stare into the rays of the sunrise reminiscing on the events that take place in life,
There can be so much pain with very little time to do what can be desired in life.
That is why we must live our lives to the fullest like our loves ones did before they went
Take their wisdom and lessons to succeed and make life our own.
I think back on how me and my grandfather re-connected and it seemed like I never was away,
We could sit and talk when I visited as if we never missed a day.
He once told me, "Darius, being a man isn't about doing what you think a man should do,
it's about doing what's right and being the real man God tells you to be."
He shocked me but that is when I realized he could see the man I am destined to be.
Life goes on as we mourn for the fallen but we mustn't forget that their life wasn't built
Joy is what we should express for them because we shall see them again.
We are all sad...some of us even close to losing our minds,
But no matter what happens he will be in our hearts reminding us all of the good times.
As we continue our lives he will be watching from a far,
Guiding us...protecting us...as if he's our own personal northern star.
The night can be unkind to even the mightiest Knight,
But even he knows the evils that stir can be over powered by God's light.
Through the deadliest storm we will have one another to overcome any type of weather,
No matter how strong we make ourselves out to be the love for family will always provide
His legacy runs through our veins so our heads must remain high without doubt or shame,
Floyd Leroy Knight is one of the most greatest husbands, fathers, and grandfathers that
God blessed this world to contain.
