It is not the end

The loss of life, a friendship paused

Senseless violence with unknown cause

Struggle, Fear, Anger, Pain

Going numb again and again

Tragic end that was not earned

Time to reflect on lessons learned

Light, Companion, Peace, Love

Divine inspiration from above

A smile that could light up the room

A life of hope not of gloom

Touching each person you met

An amazing example was set

Remember, Laugh, Cry, Grieve

See the legacy you leave

How will this work out you say

Watch for the blessing day by day

Genuine companion, love, and concern

Time to apply the lessons I learn

I was honored to call you a friend

I am grateful I know this is not the end

~In Loving Memory of Officer Doug Barney
