I Just Found Out TodaybySEVERUSMAX©
This is in memory of Colleen Thomas. Colly, I grieve for your death and the bereavement of your beloved Melissa, but I will try to think of how lucky we all really were to have known you, however long we did. You were an amazing friend. I hope that you are happy or at least at peace, wherever you are. The Gods be with you in your passage to the next world.
I did not know until today,
that you were gone, and there to stay.
I did know not until this morn,
that Death had come and I must mourn.
Scant hours now, that I have known,
and the pain has quite already grown.
It will be long before I can,
be a much less grieving man.
We did not love, we were simply friends,
but that does not this sorrow end.
We knew each other but on the Net,
yet you are one that I will not forget.
I am not as bereaved as the woman you loved,
but I am indeed in mourning enough.
Thank you, anyway,
for what you've done.
The news of your demise has left me stung,
but I still refuse to keep you unsung.
For those who never you did know,
I share nonetheless what pain here grows.
If this verse does any here confuse,
I ask forgiveness, for I had scarce the news,
that a dear, sweet lady, a Sapphic Muse,
has been further life refused.
It will take a week or two for me,
to remotely return to normality.
