A Tribute to an Elder Statesman
by David Ives
Created 22 October, 1998
"A valiant heart lies stilled, yet echoes through my memories.
The days ne'er seemed so bright as when I held him close.
Pure Spirit he, he threaded through my life;
My heart and his were joined in boundless joy.
And as I held him for his final rest,
My heart and soul were torn apart in me;
Though I could do no less for him I loved;
I knew t'would never be so bright again.
But as he crossed sprightly o'er the Bridge,
I know he looked back and said with his dark eyes:
Dear Friend, we part but for a little while;
I'll wait for you amidst the bright sunshine."
