In remembrance of you my friend
The last time we spent together
As we laughed, as we ate
As I recorded our time together
As you took our first selfie
To that dreaded Facebook inbox
That shook the foundation of my world
You were gone, you had passed
My dad had just been buried
And now you?
The long sorrowful roadtrip to Rustenburg
I was glad I didn’t make it in time
To see your open casket
I wouldn’t have been able to deal with seeing you.
As they lowered you, six feet deep
The clouds giving way to the first sunlight of the day
God’s way of telling me, heaven had a new arrival
It is one year today and i miss you dearest
We shall see again, some day.
