A Sweet Fellowship

Hello Friend

although our time was brief
we had a sweet fellowship
desired by many
experienced by few

a firm hand welcomed me
pure joy, without fail
guided our conversation

each time we met
laughter, augmented with love
strengthened our bond

neither was taken for granted
sincerity, seasoned our shared vision
of faith, hope, and charity

it is a mystery
that by design
this moment
has come

grace grants safe passage
a choir of friends and family
sing you to rest

your laughter has been saved
embraced in my memory
tears soften my voice now
to say to you

Goodbye

James F. Ross
