A kingly Grace

An emblematic

Powerful punch dimmed the light,

yet a shadow burns.

Captivating grin

hid great pain, all the while

Strength radiated.

Proud nods of honour

in grief, lifted evermore,

deeply take seed, here.

As he finds rest now

finally, tears flow, root and

Cultivate meaning.
