FAREWELL TO DAVID
The young innocent child playing with his toys
Gives his parents countless joys.
An energetic youth, full of charm.
Who would think he’d come to harm?
Noone knows as he grows what his future will be … what about his tranquility?
All at once his world is shattered. He has the feeling of being battered.
Unseen demons chasing him, causing strife, making life grim.
This is hard for him to bear. Our brave youth sheds no tear but comtemplates this world to leave,
Not considering how much will grieve dear family, friends, who truly care
And grief and sorrow will always share
For him to leave is to find eternal peace, which some say is truly a release.
“Did he need to suffer so we all sigh and think of happier times gone by.
Memories a-plenty with you we’ll share. Remember, friends are there to care.
Never doubt, you did you best. Thank God, your son is now at rest.
My dear friend Iris, is no longer with us. May she rest in peace.
