Requiem

    photo by Herb Clark

It has been 4 years
seems like just yesterday
In the grand scheme, it was
A lot has happened here since you left
We never thought we would survive
But we have
In spite of, because of
Haven't heard from Ishi
He seems to be in and out of consciousness
You know what that's like
So do I
I have made some progress
Love, Conception
New direction
My art lives on walls now
And you in my memory
Life just happens
Everywhere

  1. Tony,
    John was a very fortunate young man to have had a friend like you in his short life. You stood by him and kept him going for many years. I know that you learned a lot from him as well. Your poem in his honour is very moving and i know that it comes from your heart. XXOO Mom
