Poem For Derrill

'You were a musical genius this I know is true..
You spread joy and laughter in everything you used to do.
With every song you ever wrote...
The magic and beauty of every note.
But I didnt realize the depth of your pain and sorrow..
You knew that everything would be better tomorrow..
God said to you the day you died come my child come with me.
Come and see the magic of my kingdom come make haste and see.
You used to entertain the children in Afghanistan.
But that is not where your steps to peace really began.
I bet you were always a peacemaker and cared for human life.
Now you've left behind a legacy, not to mention a wife.
It seems that you were sent to earth in order to spread the word of peace and love..
That is why God chose you and that is why you are now above.'

    I like this one aye, I find myself it's really hard to write poetry and not always be tempted to rhyme, I like the rhyming poetry and the poems with meaning that make one think......

    I'm sorry for your loss. It seems like Derrill must have been a very good person, probably even better than that. I think he would be proud.
