My Uncle John Died Last Night


My Uncle John died last night.

He was a good man and I miss him already.

He had a grace and balance to his life.

He saw the humor where many others could see only pain.

I miss his laugh already.

He had a grace and style that took me back to another time

When Fred and Ginger could lose me in their dance.

I miss his smile already.

My tears are flowing freely now.

I miss my Uncle John.
