Seketl’e: I Once Knew A Kid

August 13, 2015

Seketl'e

I once knew a kid who blew me away

All the way into outer space

Through the stars and past the moon

He never learned how to use a spoon

—–

Not one word

Yet he said a lot

A tough little warrior

Who blindly fought

—–

Hard to imagine

the love that comes with

Even harder to witness

a child getting sick

—–

I once knew a kid for a very short time

So short, in fact, it made me cry

He never complained, always sustained

The soul of this child will always remain

—–

He must be singing now

Hitting high notes

Up in heaven

All afloat

—–

For so many people

In so many ways

All I can say

Is that he went away

—–

I once knew a kid

His name was Seketl’e

He touched the world around him

Of this, I can betcha’

—–

I never held him

He never spoke

But trust when I write

He was the ultimate bloke

—–

I once knew a kid

His name was Seketl’e

It’s his birthday, you see

So, let’s not forget that
