Leonard Nimoy’s final tweets: ‘You and I have Learned’

BEL AIR, Calif. (MEDIA GENERAL) – Leonard Nimoy passed away Friday at the age of 83. The famous actor who embodied the role of Mr. Spock on “Star Trek” left the world with so much more than episodes of the old television staple. In this final tweets, Nimoy communicated in poetry and simple prose.

Four days before his death in his Bel Air, California home, Nimoy tweeted, “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.”

Just a day before, on Feb. 22, Nimoy shared a poem from his book “These Words Are for You” titled “You and I have Learned.”

You and I
have learned
The song of love,

and we sing it well

The song is ageless
Passed on

Heart to heart
By those
Who have seen
What we see
And known
What we know
And lovers who have
Sung before
Our love is ours
To have
And
To share

The miracle is this
The more we share…
The more
We have

-Leonard Nimoy
