Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
Every year, I hope to forget or to either remember in a fleeting thought. This is the 17th year.
My dead boy Tim died on St Patrick’s Day. A rather difficult day to forget now that even the leprechaun has made it safely to Africa, along with Halloween. Is a bit like the Valentine’s Day hype, except I receive nothing. I am only reminded of what I lost. The best of friend.
Having successfully avoided pots of gold, I see the universe is a bastard.
Scrolling through Facebook tonight, I saw the words… unexpectedly felt my throat close and excused myself from the room.
It was spring. We were standing outside a pub looking up at the skies. We liked silences. They were comfortable.
Tim broke the silence by reciting a poem while not moving his eyes from mine even once. I didn’t know the poem. Now, I’ll never forget it.
One shade the more,
one ray the less.
I will remember you in every starry sky I see.
You were enough Tim.
