an old friend died today

an old friend died,
today.
it was not unexpected,
many would say.
but his passing yields
memories,
when he was still there,
lost years and lost moments.
in our sinks,
wilted hair.
sweet moments now seen,
when it was then,
they were pain.
but moments they were
and they will not
pass through,
again

rest in peace, larry T

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
