Tribute To Robert Rowland - Poem by Charles Garcia

Don’t shed a tear for me.
Move to a window, gaze out at the sky.

Although I am no longer near,
My life on Earth expended,

The world goes on.

For now, I am free of the pettiness and
Meaninglessness of life;
No more pain or suffering.

In spirit, I shall live forever,
Though all about me, silence lies.

My spirit shall transcend,
Somewhere else or here.

For, you see, I did not die.

Charles Garcia - May 2006
