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?
