His wants were simple

His wishes few

He craved neither wealth nor fame

An honest man with a heart of gold

He asked for little from those he knew

He lived for each passing day

And never failed to do his best.

His heart was warm and tender

He lived his life for those he loved

And those he loved remember.

He would not wish for sorrow

Nor would he wish for tears

But just to be remembered

By us throughout the years.
