Recalling how a smile would greet,
his kind face, captured in my mind.
I wish we could return that beat,
to a heart which was so fine.
More to this man than I ever knew,
calm reassurance, all the while.
Considered words, I longed to hear;
his face remembered by that smile.
Measured thoughts of rich memories,
legacy left through poetic seeds.
His stories, full of adventure;
a gentleman, whose words would please.
We mourn the passing of a friend,
grasp precious moments in our mind.
To search a friendly street today,
a better man, you will not find.
