Just Plain Foolish

Just a chance for an old-fashioned, simple storyteller to say what needs to be said.

For a parted friend

Through shade and light,
You've sailed beyond the sky,
Beyond our thin voices calling,
Beyond our short arms' reach.

We lift up our prayers to Heaven
Hoping you can catch the whispered words,
Catch the sadness of our hearts,
Catch our souls' wanting.

We pour sweet mead to Earth
Reminding ourselves to taste the honey,
Taste the sunshine of the daylight world,
Taste the tear salted sweet memories of you.

To echo your words: Amen. Lovely tribute poem.
