No matter what color they were they were
I saw so many magnificent minds
lighting up the street with the
hunger of humanity
eagerly enveloping everyone in earshot.
it was a sight to behold
it was a sight to believe
it was a sight to bestow.
life, love and laughter.
We never discussed the hereafter.
When you are out and about
and living in the now,
you don’t think about the
harm in humanity.
The moment is wrapped in permanence,
if only for a fleeting moment.
On Saturday we were all
I only saw two colors on Sunday –
they were dark and

singing and dancing and exalting.
Our song, our dance, our praises
will go on and fade to
a new song, a new dance, a new day.

It was the last day.
Always remember your last song,
remember the warm feeling
remember your connection to humanity.
Remember to keep on laughing and loving and living.
