MOURNING Soliloquy for Dirk Jan van den Heuvel By Polly Guerin

Dirk and Polly

What has become of this dear friend of mine?
When last we were together he was fine 

So cold, a silent stranger has come
To claim him before the rising sun

Vague shadow cast memories on the wall
Your journey, a life well lived, I recall

But ensuing days seem strange and cold
I remember you were strong and bold

A maverick man you loved the arts
A faithful friend and a loving heart

How often you there there with care
The world is now silent bleakly bare

A gracious host, it was dinner at eight
Silent now, destiny ruled your fate        

So long a friendship in kind did last
Now shrinking days so fast go past

Life in Maine claimed you as her own
No finer man, forsake, I have ever known

Watching each other in our sad grief
Fond memories in our heart give relief

Come closer, listen and mourn with Chi
Dirk's soul in heaven sets us free!!!
