 Elsie`s Poetry



This is a very sad day for us all I know
But it seems it was Alf`s time and he had to go,
It still doesn`t make it easy to accept this fact
Losing him has made such a large impact.

Words fall short of just how I really feel
My sorrow is something I just can`t conceal,
I`m glad I went to see Alf just the other day
I got to tell him I loved him before he passed away.

My heart is so heavy now that he is gone
But one thing`s for sure Alf you were second to none,
A kind and gentle man with a heart of pure gold
These are the memories my heart will forever hold.


I will miss you Alf of this there is no doubt
Even though on earth a bright light went out
If we look up to heaven we`ll see you shining bright
For you will be the brightest star in the sky tonight.

Alf has gone home now to Sheila his beloved wife
With whom he had spent the best part of his life,
Together once more they will walk hand in hand
A reunion in heaven for it`s their promised land.

It is so very hard to have to say goodbye
`I miss you Alf` is what my heart will cry,
But you rest in peace Alf for you deserve no less
So to you my friend it`s goodnight and God bless.
