There are only memories now

The sunlight streams in through an open window

A cool breeze follows it in

The day holds promise – relax, chill out

Yet a family is frozen in time.

How do you handle the loss of a young one

His future – a brilliant sky blue

An apprenticeship to go to

A drivers licence just obtained

School Captain – A goal achieved

And in one moment – the promise ends

No one to blame

No one to hate

No one to direct anger to.

Devastated

Numb

Mute

The why – perhaps it goes unanswered for ever

Cruel to take this young man

An honour to his family

A prime example of the character we need more of in this confusing world

Gone

Just gone

His physical presence wiped from this Earth

Perhaps his soul will remain

But his memory – lives for this generation

No children left – his line ends.

Definate.

Gone.

A beautiful child

Bang – no more.

His legacy – not genetic

His legacy – memories

So F***ing sad

so F***ing painful

To think that there are only memories now.

Written in memory of Liam Keagan – passed Tuesday 23rd March 2021 in a freak acident that was just that.
