(Daily Post)

He found life strange sometimes 

Strangers became friends

Some became family 

Some helped him ascend 

Others celebrated his expiry

Some held him in their heads 

Others, in their hearts

When the hard times arrived 

Some friendships expired

Others arrived 

And they inspired

These, who lifted his soul

Had his heart as their goal

For those that ceased contact

It had always been an act

He was now a distant memory 

Because his presence 

His life and his essence 

To them

Had always only been Temporary
