A Tribute To Mitchell John Kemling


He was like a shiny gold casket
That, when opened,
Shows coins of the same color
As well as pearls, diamonds,
And colorful gemstones.
A loving person to the end,
His organs saved lives
After an aneurysm left him brain-dead.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
