Goodbye, Sir Terry,
Thank you for your kindness, your sharp pen and your sharper mind,
Thank you for writing, for sharing, for the laughters and grins,
Thank you for DEATH and how funny you’ve made him,
Because if DEATH is our friend then the end is not as scary or sad,
But even so, tears are flowing and I can’t stop them.
You were brave and angry, angry against that illness that takes and takes,
When you’ve given us so much,
I didn’t know you personally, yet you meant so much to me,
I’m not alone in this.
So I’ll read and reread your words and think about how you touched my heart.
And I’ll miss you.
Goodbye. Farewell. Have a safe journey.
