The Man In The Shadow

The man in the shadow
to us here delight
his generous heart
is forever giving
his precious time
shared without restraint.

The man in the shadow
deserves all our thanks
for making a home
where friends
become treasured
through the family created.

The man in the shadow
we graciously give you
all our warm thoughts
and good tidings
to carry you through
the glorious holidays
and the year ahead.

May all your days
be as bright
as the days
you have given us
in the comfort of your home.

Such a lovely and fitting tribute  
Well said Lost Dreamer!  

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

You've captured Ron beautifully! I guess he is in the shadows...never thought of it that way! And I agree...he deserves our thanks for creating a 'home' for wayward poets!

This made me smile when I thought about the words. Great tribute.

Ron deserves this and so much more, but for me this is all I have to offer other than my sincerest thanks for the home I have come to enjoy here at Passions.
