To My Dearest Jong
Author: Bench


Never again will I see
That sweet smile my dearest boy.
All I have will be memories
Of that cheerful countenance.

I can only recall
The way you'd make me laugh
Or when you'd make me smile
On such terrible days.

Your existence assured me
How beautiful life is.
You never ran out of hope,
Nor faith, nor love.

Now you lie so peacefully
Inside that ornate box,
Still with that lovely smile
As if to say you're okay.

Tears shouldn't fall.
The tears won't fall,
I know you wouldn't allow it.
So I just make a pervent prayer.

I know deep in my heart
Wherever you may be
You still have your smile for me.
And I'll keep on smiling.

Goodbye for now
My sweetest boy,
My dearest Jong.
'Til we meet again.

------- Author's Notes -------

He was only 21 when he died. He was riding a motorcyle. Somehow he lost control.
