A FLEETING MOMENT

A Poem by LeeLee Ryder
"

life is too short.. inspired by a neighbor's death 1/18/2010.. A flow of emotions ... free form

"
A FLEETING MOMENT

YOUNG MEN DIE EVERY DAY, THE NEWS SAID TODAY
YES, IT HAPPENED, A GENTLE SOUL FLOATED AWAY
TOO SHORT WAS LIFE, THE MAGIC HE STILL EXUDES 
MEMORIES OF HIS SMILE, BRINGS JOY TO MULTITUDES

A POET, WISEMAN, HE WARMED OUR HEARTS AGLOW
A LOSS, AN ACHE, WE MISS HIS EBB AND FLOW
DEV, A SPIRIT OF HOPE WE'LL ALWAYS KNOW 
SO VIBRANT, SO JOYOUS, WE LOVE YOU SO

Although, i don't know your friend. Your words paint an image of a young man, overflowing with the zest for life. Taken, before he had the chance to live and grow old. No truer forms of honouring his memories, exist, except than this poem. Hoping writing this very personal poem is cathartic for you, in your healing.

Free flow is the greatest form of poetry cause it has the most genuine emotions... this was quite amazing... what a great tribute to show he is not just another statistic but a human who left his mark.
