After the War
April 27, 2012 § Leave a comment
You fought hard battles, grasping at straws just to stay in the fight.
You were a quiet warrior, more worried about those around than the life you were losing.
You sailed the oceans, saw the world, though the best part was always coming home. To your family, the ones you loved more that life itself.
A quiet morning unfolded, and you travelled home for the last time.
In sadness, and in love, we said goodbye.
All there is left now for me to say to you is thank you.
Thank you for being the kind and loving, and strong and quiet, and so wonderfully funny uncle of mine.
Rest in peace ❤
