    We were inseparable you and I
    since your birth
    I have watched over you
    like only a big brother could
    never fought
    we protected one another
    sharing each other pains
    and dreams
    composing poetry together
    we were the Brothers Xtreme
    nothing could separate us
    even after the accident
    you bounced back better than ever
    but then the illness
    result of complications
    with the surgery
    yet
    you never gave up the fight
    you got married
    and things were going good
    big time job in Atlanta and company paid house
    until the illness took its toll
    flying down to the dirty south
    I brought you back
    going thru therapy and rehabilitation with you
    yet keeping it secret
    cause you didn't everyone to know
    then the miracle recovery
    watching you being restored
    reading you as you scribed once more...
    The brothers were going to ride again
    but then you called me
    told me you wren't doing so well
    your wife and I along with mom and dad
    took you to the hospital
    only a matter of time
    today I got the call
    to come
    you had one final word
    for me
    I still marvelling at how you had the strength
    to make your final words a poem...

    you and I
    together in this life
    and the next
    I'm just going ahead
    to make sure everything is ok
    you see I talked to the Master
    and he told me it was time
    and I beheld a glimpse of the true Lighthouse
    its light
    washing over me
    and I knew that it was time to go home
    so Kev I give you my final testimony
    I thank the Lord for being saved and sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost
    and I'll see you on the other shore....
    then you gripped my hand
    and left this mortal for immortality
    rest my brother from all you labors
    until I see you again in that great resurrection.....

    Watcher AKA Keith RIP 10-29-03

    Going to miss you little brother...

    I want to thank all of you for the love shown...yall know how much my brother loved this place and watching over it....Right now things are at a standstill for me..not quite sure which was I should go....think I'll rest a while and reflect...

    Peace

    for ever the poet

    as the tears
    touch my eyes
    to feel what you felted
    during that final time
    a brother
    a friend
    a husband
    a son
    You have shared
    so much of Watcher with us
    R.I.P the body temple
    Forever the spirit of him
    Will be remember.
    Peace

    Another Soldier...

    We met on the battelfield called poetry til you challenged
    me with your flaming sword of words...
    Showed me how to flow with the champions!
    Said action speaks louder than words.
    You were always true to yours.
    If you said you were gonna bring it.
    You did.
    If you made us hit it...
    IF IT WAS STRONG...
    MOST OF US HID!
    Not knowing whether to say ouch or amen.
    Then you were my friend!
    Watching over me, unbeknownst.
    Filling me with cheer, unknowing.
    Didn't get a chance to see you go
    even know you were going!
    I can pretend that you are still here.
    Always watching...WATCHER...
    always near.
    Love and Peace and as always...
    BLESSINGS ON YOUR HOUSE!
    From Ms.B in KC love ya Bish
