Beauty in the eyes of the beheld
Could've been a dream or a thought out of mind. This was a man that couldn't be judged, to see things as they were but still to love them. To care about simple things for their value when others would ignore. To be in the presence of darkness but take note of the powerful light that created it instead. To understand that imperfection is perfection in a different sense. He cared about creation and destruction, but he thought of them as the same, he cared about good and bad but they were too the same. He didn't care what people expected of him and he didn't take the shape of anything to fit in, when thrown into a battle he needed no weapon but only his heart and words. When challenged he would laugh in its face and already claim his victory, which left his challenger in curious confusion.
He was a man you couldn't help but follow, despite not changing at your desire he was still your dream of perfection. He chased after what couldn't be followed but did it anyway because he could, he did what he was told couldn't be done because he could, and he did it all with a smile and he didn't give his worries the chance to overcome him because he accepted them. With just a smile he could change light to chase away the darkness, just a conversation was enough to love him, just a laugh was enough to make you wish that in another life or in another time that he could be yours. He was a lie but one told to ease your pain, he was a story told to explain hardship, he was love but in a way you would never know. He challenged you to face your pains because he knew you were stronger, he would motivate you into better change, he would cry your tears so that you could smile for his joys.
Despite it all he was as he taught, he wasn't everything you dreamed him to be. He was his own person with his own thoughts and needs, and he let us all know that he couldn't be what we wanted but instead what we needed.
