November 1985

 

honour held

for those of you

            my friends

who now are gone

you I've loved

while you lived

and now in death

I find I love you still

 

a chain of gems

my remembrances

of times gone by

a smile

a cry

a tear or laugh

good times

that now are gone

 

I ask my Lord

why?

why in youth He took you

and no answer comes

that I can see

yet while I live

I see and learn

 

I love you

I miss you

more than words will ever know
