A Man Like You

Carved out of all the ancient mythological legacies
And honed with the highest wisdom ever known
You roam through life in the most perfect balance
Deeply consumed in others, but never about your soul.

No doubt, you are here on a most challenging mission
with an extremely high price tag and no one to help.
As if previously told, you know how to find the way
to convey among us the message of the “Right Way”.

You, that took time to search within and found the love
most of us humans never manage to get a glimpse of.
And took all this knowledge and wisdom experienced
to apply it where needed most, fearless of being judged.

You, with no regrets and who harbors no ill feelings,
have long been set free from this dark mundane rut.
But you still carry on humbly and gallantly with all,
because on this, our level, equality is the rule of gold.

You, that acted responsibly and committed to your goals.
Who learned how to share and shared peace with the world.
Who never looked away from others in need of comfort.
Who always engaged in all battles for a higher cause.

Always led by example, but never judged your brother.
Demanded and expected excellence, but gave it in return.
A man like you I’d like to resemble before my time expires
A man to remember if we could ever be a man like you.

A Man Like You
