you asked me one day if we were brothers…by Scot Young

–for Bob Church

some people go through this life
never making a true connection
with another human being
never really making a difference
but your footprint
left gently in the mud
beside the lake
will be found
years from now
cast
into a single mold
studied
put on display
so others will know
how it should always be

    I love the simplicity of this comment. It is similar to a kiss, but ever so much longer lasting.
