Today a new life begins, innocent and pure. He hears the thump, thump, thump of a heart that is strong. He’ll take his first breath with lungs that are clear and savor fresh air without any fear. He has lived other journeys absorbing much wisdom. As he smiles at the world, is he hiding a secret? Once a man, now the past left behind.
Goodbye, my friend, I know you are safe. No more pain or suffering for you. What a wonderful day to start anew. As I gather with friends to say my goodby’s, my heart has sadness but know it was time. I enjoyed our laughter and your great sense of humor and wish you much happiness, as your journey continues.
In Memory of Rick Helton, 10/11/10
