Rest in Peace - Songs for the Dead - 1. A Song for Moggy

Moggy and i had spoken in the comments and PM about writing something together based on her piece called Footprints.

This one is for you,
a poet's élan vital we shared.
We'd talked of writing a duet—
a song that will n'er be heard.

I'll write this one for us.
You've stepped on ahead
I'll come along later—
soon, though not today.

And when we meet again,
you and I will both be whole.
You won't then lead
I won't then follow

We'll do of what we'd spoken—
write a poem together.
And in harmony we'll walk,
leaving footsteps in the sand.

Rest in Peace Moggy ... your words will live on.

I remember her Footprints poem. This is a thoughtful and fitting response to the love of poetry that you both shared. 

Yes Sir, we did share that...

It was good of you to look for her and to call. I asked around the people i knew, but no one had contact info. Thank you for doing that.
