Blessed By Wonderful Neighbors

Thinking Of You

Life being busy as it is we all go our own way

But that is not to say we don't appreciate friends who are caring and special

If it is a quick hi in passing or yelling their name out loud so the birds can hear

We are happy they are here

To see them smile and laugh is a common sight

Sharing the years of friendship that follow

Helping each other out without a thought

Roger you have made my life more special

Always there knowing if I needed anything you were close by

You will be missed

I stll use the lawnmower you gave me when mine wasn't working

You brought it over and had perfect timing

With every year that follows I will cut the blades of grass that grow so healthy and strong

Remembering you and all that you have done

Because that is what makes life so special

Karen and Roger are a pair that can never be separated

When the flowers bloom and the garden grows

It is always nice to see a day filled with great memories and new joys

Even though my day now is covered with leaves,leaves and more leaves

Thinking of you is always so easy to do

DREAM ON...What a nice tribute to your neighbors...I assume they moved ( not died)

although in todays world it is rare to even know neighbors names let alone talk to them..When we first moved to this state, there was a saying, don't bother to learn their name, they won't be here that long..meaning it was a very transient state or they died quickly..I do miss that quality, which really exists only outside this state.....great heartfelt poem..kudos again..enjoy the day..

Congrats on great neighbors. Nice way to put it so poetically. All my neighbors are strange but helpful if it's necessary.
