In Loving Memory...

Sallied forth to a place uncertain, unseen

Robbed of a future and the chance to age

Fleeting lives taken so suddenly it seem

Leaving memories riveted in a labyrinthine page

 

"What could have been?"--now left unanswered

The budding of youth halted & forever shunned

All that is left are dreams unaltered

The fruition of which shall never be at hand

 

Bold inscriptions on stones would clearly state

The youthful passing of a precious friend

Yet life shouldn't be remembered on the written dates

But rather what the hyphen meant until their end...
