Falling Leaf

By Christian Martin

  1. You are a falling leaf
  2. to whose cry we are deaf;
  3. In the silence of the night
  4. You took your final flight,
  5. That trip to dust
  6. As we all must.
  8. Reborn to another life,
  9. Love is now your feed,
  10. From it you will seed
  11. And evade today’s strife;
  12. Rest in an angel’s creed
  13. You have earned your deed.

In Memory of Sam, founder of HIVThrivers, a friend, who died of AIDS on October 9, 2000. My friend, may you rest in the arms of God.
