The light of my brother

I
Watched
Precious
Life
Evaporate
From
His
Eye

As
I
held
his
hand
with
childlike
imagination
hopeful
that
active
electrons
from my
functioning
body
might just
possibly
escape to him
re-ignite the peaceful, comforting, interested spark of his eye
just one more time.

anything
i
could do
to
bring
him
back
into
the
organic
world;
i
would
have
done,

BUT HOW NAIVE!

WHO AM I?

to
think
I
could
tinker
with
natures
subtle
flow

more so,

WHO AM I?

Too
Be
Presumptuous
enough
to
question
God's Will!

So
I
Sobbed,
His
sweet, kind
and ever beside him
glorious
wife and soul mate
sobbed,
his
wonderful,
spiritual and grateful
daughters
Sobbed,
My wife sobbed,
His
Beautiful
And
erudite
Grandchildren
Sobbed
His sister and brother-in-law sobbed
Everyone in the room sobbed!

We
SELFISHLY
Sobbed
Grieving
OUR
Loss

while near our hearts, and frightened
minds. . .

ANGLES

Gathered. . .

Sang

Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice

you have all
been
touched-
BY THE

LIGHT

THE GOD DRIVEN LIGHT!

OH THANK YOU LORD,

FOR

THE LIGHT OF MY BROTHER
