Dave



It's lovely three times over - Dave King


Autumn is gentle 
And on its velvety carpet
You walked away into the night

Did I say thank you
For all the kind words you gave
Before I am forced to say adieu

Thank you Dave
For poetry til the end
Gentle, kind  and brave

Til the end.

Rest in peace.

  11. Thank you, it is difficult to say else anything in reply. But Dave was such a special friend. The grief we all feel is also a celebration of friendship. Unlikely though I thought at first, many many many years ago.

    But today a reality.
