A Departure Not So Far...

Don't forget to discover the backstory behind the topics toward the end!

APRIL 20, 2011 2:03 PM PDT
At the click of a shutter
a life dies not in vain –

forever will its image
hail the beauty of its
time and place.

Taking one’s leave will
not nick their name
from the conscious of

those they loved.

Nor will it fail
to reach the ears
of the almighty

Lord above.

Death will not
mar the beauty of
her grace –

Terminate the memory
of her joyful
face –

No matter the
height of her flight,
her words will remain

at home.

When all is left
said and done, the score
will reflect that in

life we won.
