A Book


there is no space in which you belong

written in the past you live in the present

but already you are in the future

A Painter

you create images, worlds, depictions

amazing in display

with no color or sound,

just words

A Friend

You talk, tell stories,

make us smile

bring tears to the face of the reader

you are always there at our hand

An Educator

you show places we’ve never been

you introduce us to people we’ve never seen

you school us on the ways of life

A paradox

In all your timelessness, your artistry,

Friendship, and teachings

you end with the back cover

you close a chapter of our life
