To Our Loved One
Life has happiness, joy and sorrow
But never promises about tomorrow
your smile, laugh and loving touch
A happiness you gave no one can touch

Life is unfair when it takes anyone
These words you will hear flowing
from every tongue
We all sit and ask ourselves why
But deep inside we know even the
good must die.

It is Hard to let go of the ones we love
We must remember they are with God above
You have now taken your place with the best
Our loving God and Eternal rest.

March 2016

The Music Man
The voice,
the wry grin
Filling the stage
With relish
Unbridled enthusiasm

The skeptical observer
Earnestly- sometimes relentlessly-pursuing
politicos and perceived scoundrels

The would-be loner
Disappearing into the woods
Or the back of his panel truck
But ever willingly
Enmeshed in Nature

Jackie Gleason, Jonathan Winters,
And a host of others
Impersonated with not so subtle grins

The occasionally almost reluctant survivor....
Then returns the artful comedian

The Music
Has left us
But surely to the delight of the souls
Who now await him
