A Cousin's Memory Posted for: JAMES KEVIN O'LEARY: Memorial I will return there again There?s an emptiness to fill That cold black marble trail The sound it makes so still Like the church without its dome Like the chapel without its bell The quiet like a tomb Men and tears they fell I heard them tell its story But no vision came to mind Til I saw the shuffle, procession Aging memory come to find Little flowers little letters Little signs of long ago Little pictures little gestures Collected pain of our lost soul I cannot outgrow the Sixties Can't leave that time behind What the world needed now was love And we were by war defined Who was he James Kevin? Who can you be at nineteen years? Shot and gone to heaven him Us earth-bound to tears We hardly knew ye, Johnny We barely knew you James We called you Cousin Kevin You never came again I want to go back down there To the hush of that long grave Beside the black marble trail That carved our collective soul ~ R. Pacatte, 1997 In memory of James Kevin O?Leary Posted by: R. Pacatte Email: RosePacatte@aol.com Relationship: Cousin Tuesday, May 20, 2008
