Sergio

I wrote the following some time after I learnt of Sergio’s passing. It’s on my Facebook timeline. It contains a lot of references to events during the short time I knew him so it should be read “as-is”.
It’s roughly a year since his passing.

All we have now are memories

How did we part?
Vaguely remember
Was it at the car park 
Or was it at the house?

Punta Cana
Dominicana
Wish I woulda
Still hope you coulda

I see your face!
Your smile
Your voice
Your ease

Your Bunny!
Your folks
Your kids
Your friends

Not even a year ago
That I got to know you
Did we start with hello
Or a hug in June

Those who miss you
The tears they shed
Those who knew you
Their eyes are red

The flames of life
The struggle, the strife
All lie down one by one
Strange as it is, you are truly gone

All we have now are memories.

Sergio.
