He  kept  his  Faith  where  all  could  see
~~~


The  chapel  bell  was  heard  today
a  tear  filled  day  to  see
The  bell  is  rung  to  greet  a  soul
and  again  to  set  it  free
~
This  tiny  village  lost  a  son
a  brother  dad  and  friend
Three  days   they  lined  a  country  mile
to  help  receivers  mend
~
They  pull  together  in  times  of  grief
they  pitch  in  side  by  side
This  tiny  village  of  friends  in  truth
many  thousand  miles  wide
~
The  hearts  he  touched  around  the  world
near  spanned   the  globe  you  see
The  tears  of  sorrow  were  mystified
with  pride  and  revelry
~~~

Heck, I didn't even know you HAD a serious side!  LOL  This was a wonderfully touching piece though, in all seriousness.  Bravo!  And yes, it defintately flowed!

This is very touching and beautifully written, Rex! Very nice! I must admit, I was looking for a punch line but your serious poems are great too!

Thanks everyone ... My internet contract will be coming due in a month or so and I don't think I'm going to renew it ... been surfing too long and need a break from it ...reality needs a chance to register with family life ... just wanted to dust off some things I've written to show that I have more than a sense of humour ... this one was written for my father in law ... an amazing man ... missed by many
