A Certain Loss, a Special Find by Angelique Clark
It’s not the way his story’s told
or how he went from young to old.
The man you’ve lost is not a name,
he’s not a stranger in a frame.
You knew him, and he knew you,
You know him, and he knows you.
Heaven is far, but your heart is near,
he is gone…but he’s still here.
I hope you like it. I’m a writer, and while I was finishing up a story somewhwat like the Alice books, I remembered you.
Thank you. Since you gave your OK for me to print your name, I felt I ought to use it here, since
the poem is your property and you need to receive credit. I appreciate the sentiment.
