it that I knew you better, or longer… I think silently.
A familiar, haunting silence– like an unremembered dream, but very different from your silence. Your presence was a warm, deep love, albeit narrowing over the years, which nourished human bonds.
it that you followed your own best advice… I remember, silently.
Selective, honest, passionate words– a mere garnish to your unwavering dedication and gentle spirit. The compassionate, pragmatic care you freely shared with so many, was somehow reserved solely for others.
I learn about your beautiful legacy, and embrace what you have given me, I
realize how close we already are, and how close we can still become.
silent now Gerry; I’ll carry your gentle love forward, aloud.
