RIP <3

Your words inspired thousands
Touched all of their hearts
And in one fatal crash
Tore them all apart

For years you fought disease
Struggled but kept trying
Smiled and stood tall
While inside you were dying

You wrote truth and fiction
Memoir and story
Never expecting praise
Never seeking glory

You brought a light to the world
One no one can replace
You left a mark in my life
One that can't erase

A friend without a face
A bond without meeting
Talks just me and you
Now a memory softly fleeting

In one second
In one night
The earth was stripped
Of your light

A fatal crash
A burning flame
A drunken driver
Was to blame

A beautiful man
A beautiful soul
Left this world
Left a hole

You will be remembered
Though I'll cry for a while
One day I'll look back
On our memories and smile.

*James Freestone. Beloved friend, brother, son, and poet. Your words inspired and guided many. You will be missed, but your memory will live on in us and in our words. I never got to meet you in person, but you were one of the best friends I ever had, I'll always keep you in my heart. <3*
