A LIFE

A light,
an image,
a sound,
- a life.
Left now,
in photos and flashes,
the power
of memory.
A man
invoked through words.
A song,
a rhythm,
a line,
- a life.
Remembered now,
as a relic, a legend,
left out
is the surviving breath.
A man
seen as liner notes for the living.
A musician,
a husband,
a father,
- a life.
Ended.
