My mom once asked;" Son, Where do you live?" I wondered what she meant and i replied;" In this great nation of mine" She looked at me with a smile and the words that came out;" No, come back when you figured it out". So days passed by and every day i wondered, i wanted to give that one true answer, not what ive learned but what i truly am. Days turned to years and i simply forgot. Then one day i heard a voice calling and i had my answer. I went by my mothers simple house, and uttered these words;" Do you remember when you asked me where i live?" And she nodded while i said these two words "This earth".

This world would look so different if you were still alive, no one could ever fill your shoes. The dream that lived with you also died with you.
Humanity will carry on a fraction of what you taught. I saw you move mountains with faith alone. You were that Single massive star that collapsed, scattering the ingredients of life itself. To form the next generation of stars with orbiting planets..

I wish everyday that you were still with here with us, as a beacon of light. In the darkness that will come.
