Lament for Jessica Emma GentryHere standeth we, a shaken remain;Lament for Jessica Emma Gentry by ~knightorder
Our grand company in our hall plain.
Though cozy was once this contented space,
Of dizzying size is this empty place.
Great laughter and jest was our noble friend,
Our glasses were filled and our mirth expend'd.
Without her, no gathering's e'er complete;
Her friendship's a treasure that's forever sweet.
But now hold we cups that hold us engrossed;
Jests hold no echo, and tears drown our toast.
Memories and remembrance, like land under the snow;
Silence is master now; song and laughter bow.
Yet I know that she's gone to a finer tavern,
Where for merriment and song she'll ne'er yearn again.
