Andrew Charles Forrest

You opened my mind

Your spirit blew across the breeze

Like the song of the lark

You were born to please


You were open to all this world and it’s cracks

Took it all, made it better

And gave it back


You came from a dream where the sun always shone

Touch our hearts

... and was gone
