In memory...

Only you
hushed a room
upon entrance
We all stopped just a moment
felt your presence strong
With a laugh
you walked in
And we pretended not to notice
The star among us
so genuine and true
Gracious and warm
A gentleman complete
so unlike the parts you played
You still live
with laughter
in my heart
and in others
Sadness has faded now
just a bit
though not enough
Oh beautiful man
the light of you
shines bright still
in every memory
so cherished
so sweet
And yet with each smile
in remembering
I remember too how much
I still miss you
...yet I never knew you
