The Echo Of Friendship

It’s only right that the skies should turn grey and the rain fall softly.

It’s only right that tears fall into the pooling rain.

The ripples that form on the water are a metaphor for our lives.

The ripple emanates on long after the individual droplet has disappeared.

So it is with ourselves and the lives we touch. The effect lives well past the event.

From where you now stand you see so much more than I can.

You fully understand the true nature of it all from beginning to end.

We mourn the loss of your presence in the echo of the ripples you left behind.

Save me a seat near the throne brother. I’ll see you again one day.

  1. Losing a friend is among the hardest things we can experience in life. It’s always so important to remember how we impact others wellbeing.
    “Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.”

    1. One of my most influential authors is Tom Brown Jr. AKA “The Tracker”. He writes non fiction about survival skills that he learned from an Apache he calls “Grandfather”. But he works the lessons into a story about how he learned each skill or how the skills came in handy. Anyway, he writes about the concentric circles and how everything we do causes a ripple that effects man and nature.

      The person who I wrote about was a classmate who had a car wreck last week.
