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.
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
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.
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.
