This is a celebration of the life of my first love, Nicholas Jae Smith, September 6, 1976 – November 22, 2016.
Mentoring and manifesting drove all your days
Giving and healing and calming hate’s waves
Using your talents to uplift and to save
Laying the Foundation for Earth’s Golden Age.
But your swagger and wit hid a sensitive Soul
Life’s hits came too hard; your strength wouldn’t hold
And so under the grip of your demons you dove
Seeking shelter in places where you only found cold.
And then a shift in perception; a comeback touchdown
You remembered again to Live Life Out Loud
Strength rushing back with the roar of Love’s sound
Honing yourself to stand your Dream’s ground.
Now you’ve again reached the stars where Alchemy reigns
Flying in machines made from ether’s bright-colored rays
A daredevil, a traveler, a builder, a sage
Connecting heaven to Earth for this New Golden Age.
