Some People Leave A Large Hole In Your Life When They leave
I Thought He'd Never Die.
Larger than life, and twice as generous,
A heart the size of the world.
A man with such exceptional qualities,
Doesn't it seem absurd?
That this giant of compassion,
Could slowly fade before our eyes,
He shrank in body and mind,
Despite being wealthy and wise.
Slowly, , thinner, till nothing was left.
Leaving so many of us bereft,
Leaving us in shock!
Remembering days when we all would flock,
To this wonderful, Great Adviser.
A man of wealth and stature,
Whose loving heart, knew no bounds,
"Always do the kind thing....."
He'd say when trials came round.
My tears are falling like a hailstorm,
Fierce.! Loud! Eratic.!
No gentle weeping here with me,
But Howling! frightened, frantic.
So this is how it ends,
I fear for his widow,
Her man, Her great protector,
No longer will be with her.
Yes this is how it ends,
Though loved and love he'd sown,
This is how it is,
In the end, we all die alone.
