“THE BUDDY I KNEW”

By

Larry Holley

I cried a little the day he came, It so caught me by surprise.

But a score and two years later, I could hardly dry my eyes.

All the happy, carefree moments We shared those years between

Are the things that really mattered Just our simple joys and dreams.

He was just a little brother Who would follow just behind?

Why has he gone before me And I am left behind?

Cause the Lord who knows the answers

Of the questions about time, Chose to take him on to glory

And he picked him in his prime. I know he was an idol,

Like this world seeks to find. But there’s few, who really knew him,

And this is part of mine.

A BIG BROTHER
