my friend

Calluses give a passing kiss… hands interlock with a firm grip
My friend, retires today…

A giant of a man… tho’ barely 5’10…
His greatness could not be measured by his physical size…
If only someone could measure the size of his heart… infinity would have to be re-wrote

A natural leader of men… all eyes turn to him….
Never without a plan or a plea… he counseled the younger, till his last leave…
Always encouraging… he led from the front…
In today’s day & age…. Clearly, he stood out…

The day I dread… has finally come…
Our eyes could not see … our words could not speak…
There was something in our throat… about three miles wide and sixty miles high
In the silence of our clasp…. I feared for one moment…
That he would think, I didn’t care!
Ah, but…

There was more said in that silence…. Than ten thousand volumes of Socrates or Plato…
The living bond of friendship… lives past the daily acquaintance…
As my friend moves into another season of life…
Our shared experiences will unite us…
