English 11 Poetry Project #9: Elegy

Inspired by: Self-explanatory

Though I knew you not well,

I knew you enough.

Still, for all of us here

these times are tough.

For without you,

there'd be none of us here,

or anywhere else either,

no matter how far or near.

And the stories well told

of you fatherly acts

will never grow old

in our mutual pacts.

It's a matter of time,

even though you are gone.

We will see you again

in the clouds thereupon.
