    Lost at Sea

    It's been nearly 12 years since I  lost one of my best friends in a jet ski accident. And not a day goes by where I don't think about the impact he had on me and literally hundreds of others.

    With the recent passing of Kobe Bryant, I've been especially reflective on what it means to live a life of purpose.

    This is a poem I wrote to celebrate my friend Marco's life, and I hope it resonates.

    Your laugh was annoying
    Your smile was grand
    One day I hope to understand
    your stay was short
    but all worthwhile
    for everyone who saw you
    couldn't help but smile
    When I was worried
    you told me not to be
    And it is now that I finally see
    how much you affected me
    first friend in shanghai
    keeping me real
    for when I was down
    you helped me feel
    You wanted to be a pilot
    to fly free and to roam
    now with no boundaries
    heaven is your home.
    In the heart of the phoenix
    you will continue you to soar
    know that we miss you
    and love you more.
