Sorrow II

 

   (Dedicated to Brad Marggraff)

 

 

                     

Suddenly I hear the bad news of the day;

My neighbor — also a friend – just passed away.

He’s nice and handsome; he’s a good man;

Why do you die so young, my dear friend?

 

You have lovely children – both young girls;

A beautiful wife and a free world.

Over fifteen years in same place and neighborhood;

We all love and enjoy the good food.

 

We love you and we miss you;

God takes you away – is that true?

Thanksgiving is less than a week from today;

We pray for you, my dear friend, anyway.

 

God Bless your family – your children and your wife;

Take your time to celebrate a new life.

 

(Germantown, November 19, 1999)
