Haiku – 10-24-2018

My cousin Billy died after a long battle with lung cancer. His gentleness will be missed.

fall’s chill breezes blow
making the leaves shiver –
stars fall from the sky

    I am sorry about Billy, every gentle Billy, who is taken away. You have said it all in such a beautiful way. Everyone has a “Billy,” in their lives, and as we grow older, we find there are so many more “Billy’s,” going away each day.

      Yes they are. One of the disadvantages to growing older is losing people we love, out of our lives. My cousin was a sweet soul. His light will most definitely be missed.
