so we'll go on treading water,
for years and years to come,
every one of us,
because you, sweet lady,
are with the angels now,
held safe in their hands,
the way you always held my words,
my trust, my dreams, my hopes,
and all that i ever naively believed in,
all that you ever naively believed in, too
sacred in yours.
"For everything I touch, you touch. For every step I take, you take. For every breath I breathe, you breathe. Every dollar I make, you make. I told you we'd make it to the sunshine one day, you just got there a little quicker."

Eternity be fulfilled, ka.
...It always Is...
Beautiful and I love the personal touch of this.
What??? Ka died? That just can't be.
Ka...(sigh.)... :-( Thank you for liking my writing as much as you did. You're with the other angels now, sweetheart.
oh immortal beloved stirs with stars in this profoundly wondrous piece - wendz you sing here--
i don't understand how this is top rated, it's just not a good poem, sorry.
It's honoring a selfless contributor to poetry and poets, not necessarily the poem itself. Just look at it as flying the pc flag at half-mast for a while.
^ and that's all it is; the ratings aren't for this, I don't think, but for ka - she's always been a ten, always will be.
A beautiful eulogy!
We love Ka. All of us here, trapped in this one body. You've done well in the title alone. The words that follow are a fitting tribute.
I miss her.
I miss and treasure her like I will always miss and treasure humanity, and life, and love, and all the good things that keep the soul alive.
This is beautifully written, and very sad. ):
