A life explained after death

Enjoyed by those who last

Its essence lingers, like the sun

And never comes to pass


Loyalty, love and language –


Shared with few – the few who care –

Untimely when defined


In ways, subdued, but lasting

A life for others, not themself

Sacrificial loyalty –

‘I love you,’ he would tell


Those attending, those within

A place of majesty and grace

Go beyond eternity –

It’s written on your face
