A spirit that lives on with a laugh and a song.
A man with a spirit of love that came from above.
One who had a gift to give you a lift and a smile for kicks.
One man with hands so strong and so true.
He would get you out of the blues.
Through God he did try while he was alive.
A smile here and a wink there would show that he really did care.
His rubber face of expression so deep.
Would always keep the sadness away.
He would give his special time to the children so dear.
They knew they had nothing to fear.
The faces of hunger and so much pain.
Would begin to change to a smile again.
For you see Jim took the time to play with them.
Just to hold them and hug them made Jim’s day.
Those times will never go away in our mind with a laugh and a song.
Go on my dear friend name Jim.
Your spirit will go on and live within.
Go on and make a smile and feel alive.
For your smile would break the ice.
For it did mine.
Your blue eyes showed that there was still hope.
Showing life with a laugh and a joke.
This world today is too fast.
No time does it take to appreciate the one who likes to laugh.
The happiness that is needed…
It comes from you.
We will learn and we will know.
That we will never be alone.
For your spirit will live on with a laugh and a song.
My dear friend
(In memory Of my friend Jim)
