A True Man’s Passing

poemsandponderings

     Has it really been three years? How time does pass swiftly in retrospect! Rest in peace Mike Urban, you are remembered..

     May we all pause for just a moment today to remember someone who has been called home!

Jake.

A TRUE MAN’S PASSING

 The ground now holds,

within its embrace,

a man the like,

that legend, has trace.

Husband, companion,

father and friend,

and not, with a whimper,

did he march to the end.

*

 With, his head held high,

and a glass to his lip,

“a toast” said he,

some Jameson, all sip.

“ I drink to my family,

of which I’ve been blessed.

And I’ll thank God Himself,

as I go to my rest.”
