BRUNO

it is with grief
and celebration
that I whisper farewell
to you,
that I honor
your time
lived in honest labor,
love
the laughter
you poured into my glass,
remember
the songs
you joyfully squeezed
from your singing accordion.
I have feasted
at your table
generously laid
with humble heart
and industrious hands
a banquet of thankfulness,
to nourish
our eyes and hearts
with freshly baked bread
and the fruits
of your dreams.

It is with tears
and smiles
that my hands now release
our handshake greeting,
knowing
this be the final grip
before memory
holds you
in its untouchable arms.
So,
go my friend,
walk
into peaceful light
where suffering
sheds its heavy coats,
and look not back
at our mournful slump,
for that be short lived
before memory
weaves
her joyful stories.
