Insufficient

They asked me to tell 
A story of you
With words
But I find words
Insufficient
How do you describe 
A sunrise
To someone without eyes
My dilemma is
You were so much more
To me
Than words can say
I can tell of how we sat
Amongst artists in Paris
But they will never know
Your smile
They can look at pictures
Of you
On the great wall
But how can a picture
Bring tingles to one
As you did win you sang
Songs from that amazing
Mind of yours
How can stories of your
Dinner dates with Joe McCarthy
Bring to them
The safety inherent
In being in your arms
How can I
With mere words
Describe an angel such as you
I just can't suffice
But I had to try
With a tear in my soul
And tears in my eye
I will simply say 
I love you
Good bye

In loving memory of Francis Marie McQueeney
