GENTLE SOUL – Remembering Rod McKuen – April 29, 1933 – January 29, 2015.

Gentle soul

whose words of wisdom and kindness

reached out to a World

that so needed to be gentler

now missed so much

 

 

Talented far more

than credited for

Remembering you for all you were

 

Now at Peace

but busy writing

beyond the Blue Sky

in your Heaven

 

Smiling as ever above the sky

as the Sea shimmers

and the Earth

struggles to survive

amid all the turmoil

 

Over the hills

the Ocean beckons

golden shimmers on the water

calm sea awaits to be sailed

for thoughts for dreams

 

The gentle breeze

works its way through  woodland

that you planted and enjoyed

the sun shines its warmth above the trees

as Birds sing looking to earth below

 

Look above

a deep blue sky ready to be flown

where you found God

rest and peace

 

Beyond the clouds

the stars and moon

where jealous words no longer hurt

where memories of pain

both body and mind

are now erased

 

Below the Sea that calls for you

the Earth so far away

but so much better for having known you

the Sky full of glory

as you smile and play with your Dogs
