A Friend In Passing
We didn't know you
Your life's worth...gone
We didn't know
You long enough
As a true friend
But just enough
To know your truth
You were an artiste
Way beyond your time
On road less traveled
Lost in wilderness
Like so many artistes
You enjoyed having fun
Sometimes way too much fun
Happens to the best of us
You were such a smart guy
To now acknowledge it
Then we hadn't sight of it
Now we've come to be versed in it
As engaging eccentric
You were a Goliath
Dressed in David's torn clothes
Sling shooting through dark times
Wakening to White Light
