Nick's Poem

To Francoise



I am close, not far away

I know you're thinking of me today.

If thoughts of me should make you cry

And make you want to wonder why?

Remember what we had together

And feel my touch, light as a feather.

Although my body has gone to ash,

Your love for me has held me fast.

A part of me has stayed with you.

You know it well, you know it true

You take it with you every day

And this is what I have to say,

"That heart of yours, in your breast

Carries me thru eternal rest.

For every day as it flows

A part of me lives on you know.

For in your love you carry me,

Pure of soul and truly free.

The touch of Death has not won-

We are two hearts that beat as One."


In loving memory of Nick

On January 26, 1999 a friend lost her husband in a sudden tragic way. Many of her friends at Acme sat up thru the night with her and got her thru the weeks that followed. Thru her experience we learned that tomorrow may never come and to say "I Love You" to the ones you love everyday.

This poem was written for her to help her thru the second anniversary of her husband's death.
