There is a time for every purpose under the sun

Requiem for Alvaro Salas

Farewell, instructor, example, and friend.
While you kept distant
from hassle and people alike,
your soul, an elusive star,
bestowed inspiration on us.
It has been a long time
since you passed your story onto me;
the wheel has turned
and I finally see your meaning.
Tell me, is the Lady you revered,
the one whose shrine stands on the Valley,
Can it be possible
that a roaring shinigami,
wearing a deliberate disguise,
a tiger's skin with metal claws,
purrs now by your side?
