Taught to live, to appreciate life.
Shown the lighter side, the grander side of life.
Wiser teaches well, Friend flies away…
Wiser needs to be selfish, helping others has its place
But self is the whole, being a martyr for love is not what
Has got to be done, to ride, to fly, to live, to die
Vicariously incarnate, seeing dreams realized
Taking no credit for credit is not to be had
A guide, a teacher, a mentor, a “friend”
Forgotten but for nostalgic reminiscence.
