Keith (June 26, 1969 - April 16, 1997)
Daisy, I tried so many times to write
something of your beauty and being…I opened one of my little books and there it was, written hundreds of years ago by an English poet, John Keats:
A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
(John Keats 1795 – 1821)
There was nothing more I needed to say
Thank you John Keats, for your timeless poem
Your words gave me my Daisy back, to life
I will savor your words
And I shall remember her sweetness forever.
