      People I Have Known

I first found them less than a year ago,
Now I feel it is time to let go.
They have raised my spirit to a new high,
And I am reluctant to say goodbye.

Each one is different, that much I know,
But they form a beauty, as flakes do snow.
Each has so much to offer, and gladly do give,
And I think they will, as long as they live.

Now I know they have seen inside me to,
That was not my intention, but what can I do.
I have told them things about me from long ago,
I am sure they have seen deep inside my soul.

I shall remember them, each and every one,
And I know I am better for meeting them, glad it was done.
I think if I searched, I'd not find a better club,
Than the friends I have met, at the Corner Pub.

        God bless each and every one of you.
         I will check on you from time to time.

This is lovely, Bill. I hate to see you go. If you feel that you must, please stop by as often as you can.

We are better for having seen the depth of your heart and soul. God bless you wherever your path leads.

i just got here william and haven't read much of your work but already i miss you!   i guess someone who leaves always sends a little ripple effect through the community and all find out eventually...i didn't even get to know you and already you're leaving!  

well, if you must go, i suppose that's life and it must be done. hope to see you around sometime, william!

Bill you're leaving?!?!


Well, I guess there isn't much I can do about it, it's all your choice...but if you're going to go, remember to stop by every now and then!! It's the least you can do for us!  

Hope to see you around again,

The first time I see your name and read your work, I see that you will be away for awhile...but I like what I read, so your name I will look for, in the tomorrows that come to me...

Bill - I'm so sorry that you're leaving us.  I will miss you and your stories immensely.  Please keep in touch and take care of yourself dear friend.
Poet of Brotherhood,
I shall miss you so.
You have touched me
more than you could know.
I pray for you and yours,
that all goes well,
that you'll soon be back
with more tales to tell.

Hope to hear from you soon Bill!
