    The sunset of a thousand moons
    Glowed in the West

    Don’t cry

    It is to the West we behold
    The spirit of those
    Gone before us

    I hear their song

    In summer’s breeze
    They breathe a melody
    Whispered along the easterly winds
    …echoing to the rhythm of
    Heartbeats

    Do you hear them?

    Do you see the after effects
    Of his glow
    On those he touched

    Do you hear the
    Harmony
    With which he spoke

    In the West…

    Where the sunset
    Of loved ones go
    Beyond
    The now of today
    And play gentle
    Rhapsodies
    To those he loves

    I only knew him as
    Jahvandus Kwu
    Member of a unique forum
    That lists like
    Who’s Who
    Among ebony hued scribes of
    Word flow

    For those of US who knew him
    We were blessed.

    Yes we are blessed, in so many ways ... by our Brother and his words that will forever be written on the walls of our home ... blessed too by you Baller, forever a rock in the midst of storms, when nothing seems right, and spirits are worn ... hearts can be comforted by the beautiful words you share ... yes ... God is in this place and we are blessed.

    Thank you too Baller for the note, i did get it. So much going on as always, i'm sure it's no surprise. i appreciate you so much ... in a time when things that should be, aren't ... your presence brings me so much joy. Thank You My Brother, for everything.

    :heart:

    I printed this and will mail it to his mom. I'm sure she will benefit from it as I have. Thanks baller for just being you.

    Bishop/serenti-poet...a member of the family has fallen. we are all deeply sadden'd by the loss.:( too many of our bruthaz/sistahz are falling.

    Zorbi...i hope it helps his Mom in some way. it's hard when we lose those we love. it's devastating when we lose one of our children.

    peace&manyblessings.
