Elegy

Image result for rose on guitar

"So, in the days to come, your name
Shall be as music that ascends..."

To Paul x

Two years on. Your memory a melody, we will never forget.


Elegy - Siegfried Sassoon

Your dextrous wit will haunt us long
Wounding our grief with yesterday.
Your laughter is a broken song;
And death has found you, kind and gay.

We may forget those transient things
That made your charm and our delight:
But loyal love has deathless wings
That rise and triumph out of night.

So, in the days to come, your name
Shall be as music that ascends
When honour turns a heart from shame...
O heart of hearts! ... O friend of friends!
