A Tribute To Randy Pausch, Eric Griffiths, And Patrick Swayze - Poem by Joe Rosochacki

I listened to the ‘final lecture’ by Randy Pausch,
Like so many others,

I personally met Eric Griffiths in the Waverly Hotel, Bonnyrigg, Scotland,
Like so many others,

I viewed movies that were done by Patrick Swayze,
Like so many others.

They all died of pancreatic cancer,
Like so many others.

In Randy Pausch’s lecture he reminded us that we are on borrowed time,
Eric Griffiths helped John and Paul out with music with words that were put into rhyme,
Patrick Swayze had his last actor moment on A&E’s The Beast, to fight crime,
They all lived life to its fullest,
Like So Many Others.

I happened to come upon my medical issues,
Like so many others,
And had addressed what shall become of me now?
I did not pancreatic cancer but I was in dire straits back in 2006.
The dignity of Randy, Eric, and Patrick,
Of a life that was well meaning,
And by their death, a certain type of everlasting.
Like so many others,

Their lives, -
Had not gone to waste.
