George Vernon

Rookie (March 30,1988 / Lawrence, MA)


The identifiable shine traced his face
Disbursed the kindness of his heart; a deep embrace
Barriers deteriorate; the strength of a hug; louder than tongue
His name, passed onto me.
It meant nothing cause I was too young
To care; but I realized the essential blessing
Cried when he first held the little guy his name was kept in
I was a sanctuary to him
Along with his children; shined light on all that was grim
