I only hold
joyful memories
from the past
we grew up together
and will always
be remembered
as moments of
treasured innocence
and carefree laughter

I will always remain
jealous about the ways
You saw the world
with a satirical wit
like a comedian’s canvas
on which you saw,
and drew
happy moods
in your surroundings
with countless
hysterical contagious
genuine outbursts

Like a true artist
you were a master
of the art of happiness
you spent your short life
making it a better place
you knew that life
was not worth living
without a good laugh,
even until your last
short breath…

RIP Youssef.
