A tribute to Darren. Poetry from the heart.

I had a friend

with a wonderful voice

kind hearted

and generous

He sang from that special


way down deep

and loved sharing

I was not there when he died

all too young and left

a widow

and children

no words can tell

not a one

Would you


something as grand

as beautiful

as awe inspiring

as a simple ocean wave ended

his voice

and his life

that … that …

so many enjoyed?

Another friend made an attempt to sing

as we said goodbye

through heartrending sobs he tried

and he was a visage to friendship

and to us all as we sat

and wept
