Your Whole Life Was Good

To Vaughn, Sr.

by tallsunshine12

Your whole life was good,

All your days were good ones,

A picture of wonderful manhood.

Kindly ways were your ways. Talking with you

Made up a world for me. I can hear you

Laughing at a joke of mine, or a funny show on TV.

::::::::::

You never looked too far back, or too far ahead,

But lived in the moment, talking with friends and

Drinking coffee at your little stops here and there.

You were a yard sale's truest friend.

You and Daisy are taking walks together again.

Virginia and Hazel and Boyd are walking with you.

When I look around at your things, I can hear

Your voice. It's not gone. Neither are you.
