In Remembrance…

July 17, 2011, I lost a Housemate.  And a Friend.  A comrade-at-arms, a man I was looking to as a model of possible success.  We didn’t get a lot of time to spend getting to know one another, but the time spent was well, and I will carry his memory with me always.

Blessed be Charles A. Baird.

 

In Remembrance

 

Per a Friends interest

I write this rhyme

to mark the passage

of a Friend through time

 

For an artists Life

is feigning gay

we see Life’s beauty

in a vast array

 

Though time & space

we immortalize

the Good, the bad,

all that we idealize

 

A moment stolen

is all we have

to make Dreams real

to mark our paths

 

Life is short

and bitter sweet

where Love resides

lies no defeat!

 

Take your time

to remember the past

when memories Live on

their messages last.

  2. Elron is a person who actually cares. He helped that man to end his life because no one else would. An angel of mercy at the bitter end. Stand or fall, Elron is a righteous man. He is one of the few. I have tremendous respect for him.
