Bud Shaw

You came back to Rochester

to die.  Many of

us were gone.

Some, like me, had no

idea

how precious

short, yet fulfilled life

could be, then

we heard the

how and when of yours

and cried.  We cried when Trudy

told it four months past

due.  Life was

complicated by

tragedy,

yet some learned

enough, grabbed and ran,

compared and

drew a sigh

We seize all with zest,

flamboyant

in our quest for just a touch

of someone’s

memory twenty

two years down the road.

Immortal

applies to sports and music

stars, not true

friends; except special

ones we hardly knew.
