RIP but shine on my friends…..gone but not forgotten.



One year ago, to this day

Those men took your life away

Your family still trying to heal

from such a tragic steal.

For your loved ones it will never be the same

Sad that in South Africa a man is fair game.

Remember you still, as we always will.

A friend in need. A friend indeed.

Few days ago the world lost another soul

Cancer took on her its toll

She was the best roommate ever

Two years we spent in the same room together

Never ever anything but a hug or a smile

and then we lost contact for a while

But finding her again

gave us chance to catch up from way back when

Only to last not long

Despite her being so strong

Till the very end, you remained a friend

Your chats, support and always a positive thought

Is what you brought

even in a time when I expected you to be distraught

I still planned a reunion for us all

I know we would have had a ball

But time ran out…

and we will have to go without

Your light will shine on

Even now that you’re gone

You both made my world a better place

Put a smile on my face

Now that you are gone

Your memories live on

You are gone but not forgotten.

RIP Anton – 7 April 2013
