Hold Tight

everyone knows how
short life
is
how fast a moment
can
be
and how precious every
second
we have with each other
truly is

I look at you
having left your family
your friends
your country
for us

I think of the brass ring
we reached out for
enjoying the ride and not
fully understanding the gold
our hands closed around

Reading through the papers
listening to the radio
life's blood spilled needlessly
wantonly
hopelessly streaming down
the drain
gone
in a flash

Someone so vibrant
so filled with life
his presence
making the air
crackle
much like the role
played on distant shores

Immortal

And yet in one moment
one blink of an eye
gone
the vacuum created
suddenly removing
the icon
presenting the man
the father
the husband
the son
showing us this
larger than life
person
was larger
than the role played

Unforgettable

And with life beating
with one less soul
do I reach
out
holding on
to you
who gave up
so much
for
me

Reminded that
life is too
short

Reaching out
with
both fists
and holding
on
tightly
before blinking
out
