We will treasure the memories we have of him. So sorry for your loss. John and Kaye
This poem is for Dennis. I meant to share it with Cindy, kin & friends at his service.
In sowing us,
From seed of God,
There came a unique stand,
Which grew so tall and strong and lean,
By image of his hand.
And that, which came,
Began to show,
No ordinary zeal,
With sparkle and a strength in life,
A Cedar in the field.
From where he grew,
And when he arched,
By where he reached his arms,
Becoming places that he loved,
Protecting from all harm.
And rising from a unique view,
His tendrils then took hold,
To grab the world by the root,
Because he was so bold.
But unseen hazards came to life,
In causing him some dread,
By placing peril in his face,
In life, his roots, his thread.
Yet mighty master of the field,
Won't allow such fate,
That serves no purpose but to die,
Without the love innate.
Though not the once great Cedar,
By all appearance sake,
There is a strength of character,
That no one can mistake.
He sparkled inspiration,
That spawned succeeding stands,
By character from seed of God,
Unique within his hand.
And though this Cedar’s fallen,
Yet on the Earth it lives,
As new stock we grow from,
And all the life it gives.
Now back within the tending arm,
He’s seed for some new soil,
In fertile meadows he now grows,
In warm calm air,
To be re-sowed
In fields free from toil.
With deepest regards...
Cindy, I just heard about Dennis and I am so sorry. My thoughts are with you and your at this time. Vicky Jira-Dry
