the long kiss goodnight

"like a comet blazing across the evening sky
like a rainbow fading in the twinkling of an eye
shiny and sparkly and splendidly bright
here one day, gone one night

like the loss of sunlight on a cloudy afternoon
like a castle built upon a sandy beach
like a perfect flower that is just beyond your reach

born to amuse, to inspire, to delight
here one day, gone one night

like a sunset, dying with the rising of the moon

gone too soon."

  4. Wonderful tribute. I read your blog for quite some time and never commented anything but in this case I think a comment was in order. It's trully a great lost.
