A Song Laid Lost in a Shadow

Thursday, May 19, 1988

His children lay bare,

Playing with their immitant friends.

It wasn't fair

His path was chosen, but

He faught his hardest,

His life closing before him.

He wished it flashed,

But instead it just longed.

Why wasn't he last? His life

Just begun.

The angels have gotten their wish,

For it was time,

They gathered their wits.

The children got only half a deal,

It wasn't fair, they should have

Had more than just a decade, a decade

To enjoy his life, but his song

Laid lost in a shadow

For love is lost and gained only

In a memory

A memory of our family love.

A memory never truly lost.

Daddy. I love you.
