Memories Make The Man

Updated on March 23, 2010

Live and Enjoy

 When someone we love is gone

No time ot think

Now we realize how short life is

When the rug is pulled out from under are feet

Day to day we live

We want to believe we are different and the end will never come

As we count are blessings are sadness is still not understood

How do we learn from this special person we have known?

It could be just a hello in passing until next time we meet

What changes in are life takes place?

What can we do to keep his memory alive and well?

Hang his picture on the wall as a little reminder

For all to see and appreciate

A man who helped others and did his job well

The years flew by before we noticed what has happened

Nobody expects life to finish this way

Spend a moment in time to think about what things make us happy

Listen and remember his voice we heard so often

Let him come alive in the words we speak

Life must go on and we can have him by are side

His stories of family and love and friends can never be lost

Do not let the door of life close shut

Because we do not see him walk through

Have some faith and let new memories shine

Give a laugh,a smile,and enjoy all the good things Rocky meant to you

      Yes, my friend, the door is always open then the years grow and the door closes ever so slowly you, you had not time to notice. When it is dark that is when you remember the light, the light only shines through a few chosen real true souls. Love this hub always your fan...
