In Memory

[This elegy is in honor of a senior colleague on his first death anniversary]

Now tell me another story,
Quite new, but not hoary,
This gentle academic promontory:
I knew him in his glory.
The sum of moments we crossed
paths will never be lost.
Awakened we wonder what time to seize
God’s opportunities – if you please;
A reminder that life is a blink away-
From the remains of another day.
Softly I tread, greatly I fear:
Loved are the ones who are so near.

A well written tribute 10s
A lovely tribute, wise words, your fondness for your colleague comes through strongly: ''The sum of the moments we crossed paths, will never be lost.' Yes we must make the most of our God given opportunities and fulfill our dreams.
