Salute to a Life Well Lived
To Have lived With Honor
If any man can bear the load,
then live his life, well spent,
Ignoring the worst in others,
Forgiving harms, that had intent..
Embracing kindness at every turn,
Weathering the storms life throws him,
Without asking why, in my hardships,
Yet, his demeanor, is not sad nor grim.
If he can fall down, then get back up,
Face the day, sustained, in its length.
Taking the good along with the bad,
Then resolve, only courage and strength.
Then He's lived his life in honor,
No matter what a few may say.
His has been a life, of good and worth,
And for him, it has been a right way.
