Description: This poem was written in honor of a fellow writer and a dear friend, here at Elite Skills who has passed away.
He will be greatly missed by those who got to know him and read his work.
Good-bye My Friend -------------------------------------------
Sitting beside the smooth flowing pond
Looking in the clouds for the bright sun
To soak up the pain she wanted to hide
A close, dear friend had suddenly died
For him and his family she sit and cried
Poems, stories he had them all to tell
She missed these he wrote so well
Jokes and laughter was his way too
Lifting up one who was feeling blue
Was it on her computer, only yesterday?
His page today, she couldn't stay away.
The lady begin to read all over again
Poems and stories from her dear friend.
How could she pick a favorite he done,
Tenderly enjoying reading every one?
Elite Skills will miss you so much dear
Continuing our journey here next year.
Keeping your work posted on this site
Makes it all somehow seem so right.
Gone but somehow will feel so near
To each of us who knew you here.
Oh wow, shorty... You used such vivid details to depict the mood in this, that I honestly could feel every word you was saying. I know his family would definitely be happy to see this work and tribute to him. Because I know, you made me proud by just gathering the strength to write this. Keep it up, sweetie, and always stay up. That's what he would've wanted, I'm sure.
I had thought of writing something as a tribute but for the life of me I could not find the words. You have written this as a tribute to a man that we have come to know and enjoy. You are right that he was always there when someone felt blue to pick up their spirit with some story or maybe just a small comment that spoke volumes. There is not much to say here that will improve this write because it came from your heart. So, I leave you with " A job well Done"
