In Honor

On this day, I honor you-
Your humanity
your giant humanity.
No saint, its true.
Your faults, they were
giant faults.
You struggled so.
Your heart so weak
and yet so strong!
Wide as the ocean,
Deep as dirt, bedrock, magma.
Your intentions-
Such good intentions.
Some realized,
some never reached-
Some, never known

One word.
And it fits with thy name.
A jewel in our eyes.
Is honor a virtue???

Anyway, Nice poem. I like it, but i would have liked it a wee longer, it seems as if you lost the thread at the end and decided to post it anyway.

Keep it up

Thanks for the comment
And nope, I didn't lose the thread. You may have picked up on something though.... the poem is in honor of someone lost far too soon, before I got a chance to truly know him. So "too short" is a good feeling to get from the poem.

Well then i am truly sorry, for your loss and my interpretation.

No worries, a poem is symbiotic between reader and author. I got my cathartic release from writing, and you get from it what you need in the reading. I appreciate that you took the time to read and think about it.
