Tony Barker


You loved plants and birds, you loved people, you loved Spain
and people coming from Spain. You loved life.
For all this, we loved you
We will keep you in our heart forever


You can mourn because he passed away
or you can smile because he lived
You can close your eyes and pray to return
or you can open them and see everything he left.
Or your heart can feel empty because you cannot see him,
or you may be filled with the love that you shared.
You can mourn, close the mind,
feeling empty or turn away,
or you can do what he would like:
smile, open your eyes, love and go.
