My Damn Musings To Go

I'll keep doing this over and over until I get it… wrong

(As all cursed the curse of mortality.)

He, I Thought I Knew

Their spoken words, weighed well,
Carefully chosen but easily said;
Words flowed today, freely, fluent,
Words adamant, assured, addictive.
So admirable, summarizing a life
About he, I thought I knew.

Who is this man, so gallant,
So eloquently eulogized in detail?
Intrepid, lionhearted; words as I sat,
Mourners mourning in tribute,
All heads shaking, in agreement
About he, I thought I knew.

To his wife, he’s a companion lost;
To his sons, a hero gained…
As all cursed the curse of mortality;
Claiming an extraordinary ordinary man.
Sudden clarity… I had more to reap,
but, was it on him to sow, or me to know,
About Francis, he, I thought I knew.
