Poem for George Curry (Journalist) 1947-2016

i often look back…there is

so much time

there…

that summer

when we all

were just learning

and trying

to 

love;

young

undergraduates

trying to make sense

of the times

and of our dreams…

we have all

distinguished

ourselves

somehow

in ways

I don’t know

for some.

but you went forward

with high goals

and fierce determination.

i have heard of your

great works

with no surprise

and that

of others

that we knew.

our course in years

is often short here;

it is rather what 

and how we do

that sets the bar,

leaves our mark

on life

and others;

…and writes

our story

beyond

the limit

of days.
