Louis Gibbs

THE MAN I KNEW

A strange one

Was he.

 

From his eyes

Poured a captivating

Blend of kindness and sorrow

Along with an abundance

Of great wisdom.

 

Yet

 

One knew

Instinctively this

Was a man who is

Not to be trifled with,

As soon realized by

Money changers

In the temple.

 

Indeed,

He was one

Hell-of-a-man!

I miss him terribly.

        A fine write Louis. Yet we know it didn't end with His death - as some films portray Him. Doh! They've missed out the 'ending'.

        • Louis Gibbs

          Right ... death is just another beginning, isn't it. Thanks, 'O'!

              A perfectly fine assumption it is, Diamond. All poetry is open to interpretation, and I am flattered that you remember the poem to which you refer. Thank you for your thoughts! Merry Christmas.
