a tribute to the memory of a fallen friend

A loving touch
An embracing grace
Love in every breath
Honor and faith
The Muun fades
And dawn arrives
But the shimmering memory
Of strength remains
Gone from this world
Taken away
Cause’ angels must return to heaven
And humans… must stay
Our thoughts
Our minds
Our souls
Our spirits
We shall never forget
And always hold dear
The lovely Muun shine
Shimmering on our tears.

Wow! Nice one. IS it MOON or is there any such word as MUUN. But it's beautiful.

It was a poem for friend of mine who died of cancer. Her nickname was Muun. so I used the poetic licence and worked with it as Moon. Glad you enjoyed it ;)

This was great devotion for Muun, am really sorry; but seeing this amazing piece, i hope your friend will be smiling wherever he is...

You are a great talented poet as well as a good person, i wish to follow you :)

I'm short of words...........they somehow'd defy the meaning. This was good.
