What dreams may lie under surface of a frozen star?
Once turned supernova evidence comes painfully late .
For the light that we see is but luminance turned memory,
slipped though our hands forever .

For my friend kevin who lost his battle with cancer
Beautiful. Short, but filled with emotion.
I'm sorry your friend lost his battle. This is a beautiful poem, though. Very touching.
Thank you .what makes it worse is that i am a a sucky friend i tend to disappear on people for periods of time and then reemerge and i guess I expect everyone to be there.Well this time it was not so I went to his journal to say hey and found out he had died 5 months ago. It really sucks we where not close friends but he was always there for me , i would talk to him from time to time on the phone and he would listen to my problems.He was a very caring and good person he did not deserve to go like this. All he ever wanted was true love and a family of his own he dies without any of it , he did have people who loved him but not the home he wanted and deserved We often fool ourselves that everything will fall in place or that life owes us the fulfillment of our dreams but it does not work that way . We have to create our own happiness but we only have influence on our immediate surroundings as soon as a second or third person is involved we have to deal with the reality they create as well and our influence is divided by the number of people involved ...Ok I will stop now ....
I've done the same thing before... disappeared for long periods of time. I'm trying to stop that now. Good people are so important to have in your life. I'm sorry to hear you found out about your friend that way... that's a hard way to discover something like that. It's a truly beautiful poem and he seems like he was a really good guy. I'm sad for you both.
