The Skipping Stone

Like a still lake,
Tapped by a skipping stone,
Our lives have been touched,
Many ripples are shown.
And though that rock has sunk to the bottom,
It's legacy is known.
For when you look at the once-still lake,
You see it's ripples have grown.

I wrote this for my friend who commited suicide but didn't know the effects it would have.
