Ode To Jason

His talent truly matched
The hero with the regal name.
Orange was his choice in color
Basketball - his favorite game.

For just a few bright years
Excitement would abound
To the beat of soft rock
And a soulful reggae sound.

Music was in his laughter
His smile cheered everyone
And even in the darkest days
His soothing jokes were fun.

He gave away to others
And listened to their pain;
Jason opened up his heart
And his lessons still remain.

Now he talks with the angels.
In calm thoughts he sends his best;
We feel his love in our hearts
And we know our lives are blessed.
