It’s not how long you know someone,
How much in common you share;
No marathon, just a hit and run,
Yet the impact couldn’t be more clear.
The most profound advice you gave:
“Hitch your wagons to a star”
Brought me through many a dark day;
Your impact, guiding me thus far.
Though the time I knew you was short,
Shorter than anyone I’ve ever known;
You left an imprint on my heart,
With each new day it continues to grow.
This physical existence, you have left,
Leaving remnants of your soul;
Pieces of you are alive to me;
Always, until it’s my time to go.
