‘Not the end’ (for Shane)
This is not the end of your story, your beautiful life,
you loved us with the deepest of meaning, brother.
Pain, scars, and wounds you carried through the years,
your heart came full-circle despite the torment.
You are called a true son of heaven,
your wisdom made a great imprint on my soul.
Seeing the value in others which isn’t easily perceived,
your home was open to everyone who walked the streets.
17 years of experience recalled in a moment,
days like these bring up many questions.
Emotional being, it’s not easy to push past my layers,
you always showed me how I was being a jerk.
Going over to your dwelling to fellowship through the evening,
this is no longer an option, this side of His glory.
Great loss has a way to twist, confuse, and distort,
your love Lord reigns true throughout all the generations.
The line has been drawn and cannot be moved,
your word Lord is the truth that guides my life.
Many memories were passed between you and I, brother,
You are with my King now, but I miss you so much.
