Benjamin Wayne Goldsmith
02/07/1986 – 24/10/2002

This poem was written in 2012 in honour of the ten year anniversary of the death of my friend Benjamin Wayne Goldsmith, who is forever in our hearts.

Our friend Ben
We remember the day
Ten years ago
When he was taken away

Our friend Ben
Today, ten years gone
Yet his smile is still
As fresh as the dawn

Our friend Ben
Never old
But also never forgotten
His story retold

Our friend Ben
His charisma we miss;
But his essence still felt
In moments like this

Our friend Ben
Today, ten years gone
His humour never forgotten;
His spirit still strong
