My friend died today Quietly Peacefully There were no headlines No breaking news declarations The world still spun on its’ axis My friend died today Quietly Peacefully Time did not stand still People moved about They laughed, smiled, got coffee and posted to Twitter My friend died today Quietly Peacefully Life didn’t miss a beat Clocks kept time Dogs barked, the trash was picked up, the neighbor raked leaves My friend died today Almost an oxymoron to the way he lived his life Out loud Proud Unapologetically himself My friend died today My friend…died…today And I remember him… Loud Laughing Encouraging Gossiping Humorous Writing Loving My friend…my friend died today Took his final curtain call amongst machines keeping number of falling respirations and failed heartbeats And the world is oblivious that a dynamic candle has lost its flame…
