Tears for a fisherman

Tears for a fisherman

You left us on the shore with tears in our eyes
crying your name and wondering why.

The fisherman
who left in a boat
with one thing on mind
for family and for the people,
on a river
one who gives
and one who also takes.

You left us on the shore…

In time will wipe our tears away
In time we will laugh and smile
In time we will see you again
standing on the other shore
waiting for us.

~for my cousin and his friend who
lost their lives on the Columbia River
