He lay in loudest silence

The light outside was dim

In transience this moment

Was a moment unto him

The lamp-post seemed so distant

The road it navigated – far

Reaching to the end –

He stretched his arm out

There you are

He’d travelled quite a distance

His son was by his side

Thoughts of reminiscence

He couldn’t wait to find

A lasting laugh would lure

And lead a languid cry 

As he lay there in wonder

‘twas time to say;


Dedicated to James McKenzie, with condolence for the loss of his father.
