Our loss is heavens gain.

For Micheal.

Dark as the rivers flow
Across a landscape bleak and low
My heart is heavy, with ones demise
No more to see his smiling eyes
His words will echo through my mind
A poet of a different kind
He wrote of deeds, long in the past
Of Knights and Maidens in Legend cast
Natures beauty and sweet romance
In such a way our lives enhanced
A wealth of knowledge, with us he shared
To let us know that he still cared
About his art, his love of life
His future with Kathey to be his wife
Though not to be by fate decreed
The call he answered to Gods need
In our hearts forever, we will know
You were "The Last Romantic Hero"

A great tribute. May he rest in peace.

Yes, your words tell beautifully of the love of life and Kathy that always came from his pen,,, A dear friend so missed and it is hard to belive that he is gone, the Bay seems so empty not seeing his poetry,comments and messages, knowing he will never return.

Take care

This is wonderful my friend, it flows just like the love from Mikes heart and soul. He gave us what he could and in meeting Kathy, he left us whole....Yes indeed, our loss is heaven's gain, he was in deed, the most romantic of heroes....hug from Tai, another friend of his with a tear in her eye
