Life is Short

Life is short. I learned that from you.

Well, I guess I already knew

in my head

but you made it real. Visceral.

You were 100% here and then you were gone.

A light that shone too bright to last long.


I feel it in my bones now

When I think about you

And your words.

When you’d call me brother.


You’re not living anymore

But I want to live like you.



Not hiding anything

ready to help anyone.

I want to help people

I want to change their lives

I want to change

the world.

And I’ll start one step at a time.


Thank you for being here.

For what you taught me.

Work hard. Enjoy it all. Be here while you can.


Life is short.
