WINGS OF LIGHT

Wings of light
unfurl,
stretching
from a lifelong sleep
and gently
beat the air
to kiss
our slumbering souls
that stir
with knowing
dreams.
Wings of light
flutter
rhythmically
a familiar song
that touches all
with inevitable
acceptance
that time has come
for friends
to part
and say
their final farewell.
A kiss,
a hug,
a few words
of comfort
before those wings
took flight
gave us strength
through that veil
of sadness.
In friendship
we stood together
as brothers
and sisters,
in this moment of time
sharing
life and death.

Our memories of you dear friend
will always be of love, laughter,
and of friendships that overcome the tyranny of time.
I raise this glass of Life’s ruby wine
and toast and drink
for all that dwells within us all…….
a journey that weaves us together
with threads
of sweet nostalgia
and hopes for future dreams.
If we should ever meet again
It will be
under our wings of light
that beat to the sound
of our songs
of yesteryear
and music that’s yet to come.
