He was

He was a special one,
Living his life in an ordinary way.
Colouring in his grey world with words,
To express all he wanted to say.

He was a broken one,
Carrying the scars from his past.
Covering up the pains with a shrug,
Dismissing them if anyone asked.

He was a lonely one,
Looking for a soul to call his own.
Seeking his other half, her heart,
To fill up the long nights alone.

He was a giving one,
Always seeing the gifts in others.
Quick to point out their beauty,
Showing all what he uncovered.

He was a special one,
A hidden rainbow within the storm.
Shifting the atmosphere around him,
Without any need to perform.

He was here and now he’s gone.
