Fade to Black

As the curtain draws
Upon your mortal light
A legacy of letters is left behind
To remind one and all
That you strived
To transform your times
Whilst sharing a passion you have
For the written word
With the wink of an eye
And a wry sense of humor

As the author's pen runs dry
We honor the memory
of a colleague and contributor
To a dream shared amongst friends
with words of our own - 
A toast, an elegy
To a kindred spirit and a peer

Your immortal light
Will forever shine down
Upon those left behind
Jordan Crittenden is a writer
living in Barra de Navidad
As your words continue to live on
As we fade to black
