4.4.14 – Perfect.

My brother Jason would have been 44 today. He was 42 when he died on March 15, 2013.

You were perfect when you left
all of the answers
you took with you
to life
to the universe
to everything

The wisdom you never knew
the wisdom you never embraced
you never knew it was yours
but you shared it
and it
is what we will hold in memory.

You were perfect when you left
Not the wrong soul you thought
You were perfect when you left

All of the wisdom you gave
All of the love you shared
You put truth before kindness
You cared not for dogma, church or cause

For you
it was people
equality, love, life – humanity at its best

You wanted the best part of us to prevail.

But you suffered in silence
Wearing blame like an invisible cape
weighted with guilt.

But I want you to know
You were perfect when you left.

All of the answers you took with you
to life
to the universe
to everything.
