For A Dead Friend

By John I. Blair

These memories of you
Will not walk away from me
Just because you’re gone.

So long as I recall the hours
And days we shared
And find you in the thought,
That long will you continue
Living in my mind
And also in the minds
Of all I share you with,
Ad infinitum.

This is the trust we humans bear
For those who live inside us still.

We keep the continuity of our kind
Within our neurons,
These memories we have,
All intertwined, an endless web,
A vine of being, lacing across time.
