Tribute

My heart screamed

Loss, aching so deep

Tearing of my soul

His steel gray eyes closed forever

His infectious laugh silenced

Forever

His wit and charm extinguished

Forever

Except what I see in my mind

Hear in my memory

Feel in my heart

Dazed confusion

The stages of grief march over our lives

We stumble forward

Pain

Remembering

Reminiscing

Wishing him to be with us

Or us to be with him

Profound loss

Tragedy of sudden death

Overwhelming sense of sadness

Gradually fades over time

Healing the open wound

Leaving an empty space

Time in seconds then minutes

Hours, days, months

And now 20 years

Time heals and protects

As we live in hope

Of reuniting in eternity

I love you brother
