Are you listening?

Our Father Who Art in Heaven, Farris be His Name R.I.P. Poppy I Love You

I cannot believe it has been a year.

Cheri Speak

cheri and dadBy CHERI ROBERTS

Our father had a way with words

he’d craft his thoughts with care.

His stories told, both new and old,

were meant for us to share.

Rhyming words and riddles too

a scavenger of prose.

A master of such simple words

not every body knows.

“Wars are fought for minds that rot”

was one thing that he’d said;

another was some things he’d thought

when mom was almost dead.

The time that’s passed was time well spent

adjusting while we grew.

No one is us, nor we are them

is one thing that he knew.

Six kids he loved with all his heart,

each one his special “Boss”,

are reeling now as this day starts

and we realize our loss.

R.I.P. Poppy I Love You – Farris E. Williams April 13, 1945 – February 16, 2016

Great song below…”Living Years”.

There are only so many years in a life and none are promised…
