We will miss all of you

In the days

and the weeks,

in the months

and the years,

that follow

your leaving,

we will miss

all of you:

miss your voice

that affirms

your warm presence,

and miss your smile

that tells

us of your joy

and your unrelenting optimism

in the depth of troubles.


We will miss

all of you:

all that defined

you in our lives,

all that made

you unique

and pointed to

the one irreplaceable place

that you occupied

in the meaning

of being us.
