between falling tears

just a touch
the world’s light dims
laughter rings
between falling tears
so still
so speechless
the spark flickers
before settling steady

I just don’t know what to say. Robin Williams died today. Suicide. It’s a painful thing. He gave the world so much light and laughter. Did he give it all to us, leaving nothing for himself?

I grew up watching Mork and Mindy but the very first thing I thought of was Good Will Hunting. He was wonderful in that movie.

I can’t say my usual “journey well into the next” but I do hope he has found the peace he could not find in this world…
