Alan Rickman (1946-2016)

That one wispy teardrop

Washed all of Snape’s

Sins away.

A memory so saccharine

Strong with  love

Even Lily would

cry her heart out today.


I hope that Alan Rickman rests in peace. He was one of the only actors who could make us fall in love a  Snape, a Hans Gruber and yet be in ‘Love, Actually’.


Here is him again. Charming as ever. A dying breed of chivalrous, extremely talented and modest men. We love you.

After all this time? Always!
