Don remembered

Sitting on Don Nash's bench

Remembering the loss of a friend

Taken by bus over a year ago

And comes to mind each Memorial Day

I come to sit as oft I can

When there's not much searing sun

Because these benches being so dark

Really get too hot to sit

I try to get in the early spring

Around sometimes to sit a spell

Once the snow has cleared away

And when the walks are cleared as well

Remember all our greets at church

Bringing smiles to each other's face

And thankful that each is doing well

Now only memories of smiles still remain

No more to be seen at church

Gone to help for Arts & Crafts

Lost to all the brethren there

A guiding and sustaining hand

So here's the end of memories

At least for this year's day to recall

Of being husband, father, friend

To those akin and friends to all
