In death, a new beginning he found


In death he was so valiant,

In living we do thus nigh

A young boy all of seven

Etched his name in memory so high

***

A glimmer in the shadows for those

Who awaited a supporting hand

He lived so much more than most

As time slipped through like grains of sand

***

An engrossing smile upon his lips

With a twinkle in his mischievous eye

I reminisce as I reign atop my tower of mores

Gazing at the world with a look so wry

***

Is it enough to just live our lives?

Droning on in sameness galore

Or should we be like that dear boy?

Doing some more; oh so much more…

[Dedicated to the very inspirational and endearing story of a little boy we knew, who in his passing away lent life to four strangers.]
