The Departed

How can I forget; you, be forgotten?

Not while there is earth and heaven

Not while I still control my reason.


Through veiled time, you saw me

Against all odds, made me glee.


Sensible in all respect, that’s you

Who can take your place, no clue.


Your name not written on the sands of time

But forever in this heart of mine.


These words too few to picture

Of knowing you, my greatest pleasure.
