For Lennox

A very dear friend wrote this poem for Zoë when we lost Lennox. At the time, I didn’t want to post it because I needed to focus on her so much that I had to wall off a lot of my grief for Lennox and part of that meant hiding away the things that reminded me of him. It’s such a lovely tribute to him, though, that I wanted to share it.

Two Souls, One Heart (Zoe’s Loss)

You gave yourself so I could thrive,
Through me you’ll always be alive,
What was for you an end, for me a start,
I guess we’re two souls in one beating heart.

You didn’t stay long by my side,
For each moment lost, tears were cried,
But still, I know we’ll never be apart,
Because we’re two souls in one beating heart.

The years will pass without you here,
I may forget you through the years,
But I’ll feel you brother, my missing part,
Forever two souls in one beating heart. this!

    Wow… this is so beautifully written. It could be comforting to so many who find themselves in the similar situation. Whoever wrote it ought to submit it for some sort of publishing… I don’t know what, but something. So wonderful and yet painful given your most recent loss. 🙁 Praying for you Allison and Shannon. Hugs, Paul and Jen…
