A Neighbour R.I.P.

Posted: November 24, 2007 in Poems

 

A friendly man, a loving man,
A strong man, a faithful man,
Am I describing a movie star role?
No, a small man in that sort of world,
but a great man in the realm of the heart and soul.
With a warmth of a sun’s ray on cold days,
He brought to those around him
A stability of temperature
As we walked our separate ways.
A glowing smile, a firm handshake, a wise word,
A man of God……….
Lists cannot provide an adequate description.
For a man who has earned all due happiness
Wherever his heaven.
