The One Person


The One Person

The one Person

Who cared the most

gave loving advice

He/she seemed to have

weightless steps

and the

brightest smile

and the

kindest eyes

You could always

count on him/her to listen

to help

to care

They were a friend like no

other

They would live and effect

so many lives

And it seemed

nothing

could weigh

them

down.

They put others before

themselves

They’d die smiling,

soul weightless

mind deep

heart wide-open

But alas, that

One Person

is human.

We sometimes forget our

loved ones are human

They are different

but still

human.

They have

fears

and burdens

and scars, too

But they don’t carry them like weights, like

us.

They use them

as crutches

pushing them,

building them.

They

are different

but everyone has

limits

lines

Perhaps they will not

die smiling

They could die

scared

or alone

or tired

or in pain

They all say

life is not a fairy tail

Indeed, it is not

But life is life

Life is many things.

Life is a story

we must all live.

We

must all

live.

Sometimes out stories

live on

sometimes our stories aren’t as shouted.

But we live on, all of us.

In different ways. In hearts. In the future, in a

way we all don’t die. People might forget us eventually

but we impacted the earth

we can never be erased. So we cannot be forgotten.

Surely, The One Person

will be shouted from the

rooftops?

Oh, but Death

comes.

Death does not understand we want our

friend

to live

with us

forever

No, but he/she meant more to them

than he/she knew.

The One Person will die.

And since they were human

They will

indeed

smile

into

the face

of

Death.
