Poetry: Dustin Robert Lucas (1988-2016) - "I'm Alright"

Published 29 November 2021 in Poetry

Niki Lucas, Dustin's mother

I'm long gone away
Don't you do that
Don't start the tears
Just remember all the times
We spent over the years.

Never cry
Never think bad of me
What's done is done
And that's the way
It had to be.

I need you to be strong for me
Say your prayers
In my memory
I'm sure it's helping me.

To earn my feathers
To get some wings
A halo
A harp and some
Angelic things.

And even though I'm gone
And outta sight
Never worry about me
I'm alright...
