I am so sad.
Just last week
I wrote about how pleased I was
to discover the Ray Bradbury Theater.
Encompassing both old memories and new joys,
it was like getting to meet an old friend all over again.
And now my old friend has passed away.
I know that instead of being sad,
I should feel happy
to have experienced the gift of his wit,
and his genius.
And in time I'm sure that is just how I'll feel,
But tonight I am just sad.
