For Grampie.

For Grampie:

River.

Still as the chill when the water lay frozen

no explanation for why this one’s chosen

so recently this ice was a river

words can’t describe so my pain turns to shivers

Those who have swam here remember their youth

the river brought passion they’d never forget

laughter and wisdom, the water brought truth

it’s presence was felt in more than he met

Those who were graced with the river for seasons

feel its absence and remain asking why

no passerby is blessed with the reason

but they’re certain that’s it’s in the sky
