Remembrance: Timothy L. Yazzie

He is not dead...

I cannot say, and I will not say

That he is dead. He is just away.

With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,

He has wandered into an unknown land

And left us dreaming how very fair

It needs must be, since he lingers there.

And you - oh you, who the wildest yearn

For an old-time, and the glad return,

Think of him faring on, as dear

In the love of There and the love of Here.

Think of him still as the same. I say

He is not dead - he is just away.
