For Jude

a internet fellow in sonnet writing

I never met you, never saw your smile
in real life light up the world around
yourself. Your friends say it was worth the while
to know you, planted flowers on this ground

you liked to visit, smiling, sonnet bound.
A tumor, Mike said, tore your life apart,
Sue played for us the gentle falling sound
of rain, Kathleen shared glossies that depart

with cries “we`ll miss you deep in our heart”.
Those poems tell a tale of loss and grief
in form you would have liked and made me start
my fourteen lines, that tell it all too brief:

Your friends did like you, said it eloquent:
Farewell, Godspeed, rest in your summerland.
