He caught us all, everyone of us

Before the laughter turned quiet,

Before the tear dried on the cheek.

It seems as though he always did it

Before the snow had melted to ice

And that to mud.  And in his words

We are more than alive, we are well.

Through his full understanding of us

We came to understand

That nothing gold can stay.

So far, this is my favorite. How can you say so much with so few words? Very deep and wise, this one.
