Dave’s Poem

In honor of my brother-n-law who passed one year ago today.

Know each day
I am the light on your back,
the wind in your ear
carrying the music of a songbird,
the taste of honey
on your tongue,
the chills from being in the
presence of greatness.

Let these senses warm your heart
and make it lighter than a feather.
Let them remind you of my
crooked smile and zest for life.
Let them say to you my wish for your soul
to soar free like a hawk.
And, let them whisper resolve knowing
all is well if we trust in God’s hand.
