Pap

a poem by Linda Bates Terrell, USA

A silent gentle soul,
Brave yet somber,
As his aging glory glows.
As his age captured him
He moved ever so slow
But a wiser, gentler man
Few will ever know.

His heart held direction
His gentle constructive voice
A voice that sings kindly
yet not in nought
He gave us all
Oh such great hopes
projected us towards
lifes hills and slopes

Dear Pap no longer walks this earth
To sing his hymns of songs to all
To till and hoe, his precious ground
Nor plant his glorous Kentucky beans
Is his bibs, of old blue jeans
Oh that calm feeling of love...
He so graciously left behind
While his memory rests
ever gentle in my mind
