For Robert

Bright light

Who brought laughter

And joy and love

Flamed out

Too soon

Few knew

The extent

Of the darkness

With which you wrestled

For so long


As I travel

Through the land of beauty

In which you grew

I struggle to believe

Your passing


May you now feel and know

The love

From your partner

And family

And friends.

May you be bathed

In laughter

And joy

And colour

And peace
