Death takes the living too

Standard

Always you were so alive,

Bright smile and dark mischief within.

Eyes searching across the club

Seeking out new lives to collide.

Together we’d drink and dance

Room electric with your high spirits.

How can that light of yours dim

Always you were so alive.

 

 

Always you were so alive,

Too alive to meet that death

What hate or love behind that blade

Could cut a life like yours?

But death can steal the living

As swiftly as it takes the dying

And somehow you are gone, yet

Always you are so alive.

This poem is dedicated to the memory of Steve Barrett, who was taken from our world tragically early.  Rest in Peace Steve, you were loved by so many.
