To my very very good friend C, the sands of time weigh us down, what could have been is now what was. But WE press on. Because of HIM there will always be a tomorrow, the Greatest is to come. Your Brother in Christ and friend, Stephen

Powerful, we will all have a finish and an epithet. The truth is not what we say about ourselves, but what will they say. We will leave behind witnesses.

Oh the timeline as we fade away. When the mirror reminds us to say goodbye. The dreams of the child give way to the here and now.

So sad, cross your T's dot your I's. Can we just say we are who we are. And love who we are, and say I love you, and that's good enough.
