In Memory of Eric J. De Persio

In Memory of Eric J. De Persio

June 5, 1973 ~ May 18, 1991

He was seventeen when he took his last breath,

His lungs filling with water and silt. The water so cold, so deep,

Neither sun or moon shine on this scene.

White caps lapped the overturned boat,

Death, death, death.

Lost future, lost desires, lost ambition.

I love him. I miss him.

He was seventeen when he took his last breath,

The first born, most precious, my son.
