The good die young
For those who have left this earth early on
We shall not be sad that they are gone
For they are watching upon us
Like little guardians in the sky
Connor is one of those people keeping a watchful eye
He is a star twinkling up so high
He takes the form of a bird that passes by
One day if you’re feeling sad that he is gone
Talk to him
He will find his own way to respond
Next time you feel down
Pick yourself up
Dust yourself off
And remember the good die young

In loving memory of Connor Timothy L.
“Hold It Wide Open”

The author's comments:
this is one of the few poems I have written in loving memory of a boy who passed away. I try to write for his family as much as I can because I know it will bring a smile to their faces, and thats the least I can do.
