When You Fell

When you fell, keystone to a concrete kin,
A kind light died, in jaundiced, drowning woe.
The stars came crashing sad; a sickening din,
The heavens wept. Rained tears to soak below.
When you fell, gasping for one final breath,
To tell a boy of terminal regret,
And with a sigh, to passing, peaceful death,
He howled with hurt to emotional debt.
When you fell, no more eyes to shine with pride,
Two sons did orbit near a common rift.
One lost in grief, a war waged deep inside.
And one in space, from friend’s black night to lift.
He too that lost a father, stands to tell,
We grow in stature each day since you fell.
