by Smitty

I loved you, Earl
Though but a girl
Until that fateful day
When hatred came
With gun of blame
And took your life away

Oh how we dreamed
In innocence
Those nights under the stars
Of shoes and ships
Of global trips
How adventure would be ours

Now years have passed
Since day your last
And again I here take breath
With heart a lump
As tears I dump
Where then you met your death

Lord rest your soul
As on I roll
And may He grant resolve
To emulate
Yours of that date
A life laid down in love
