This is dedicated to my neighbor, who passed away last week after a long and brave battle with cancer


I cried all night when I

heard you were gone

my tears fell

for you

for me

and for all those

touched and taken by

this terrible disease that

you and I had in common

Why it takes some of us

and leaves others

God only knows

But what I do know is

You fought hard

And you always had a wave,

a smile, and a bit of

conversation for me

Even when you were feeling tired

And probably scared

Although you never showed it

And I will always glance your way

And expect to see you sitting on

Your back porch

like you always did

And my heart will break a little bit

When I realize I won’t see you

waving and smiling back at me

Ever again

I wish you peace

I wish you freedom from your struggles

But most of all

I thank you

For your kindness and your


May God bless you and keep you, Mr. Max

I miss you already

April, 2013
