November 1988


For Richard


so many years ago

we sang

a song of praise to God

a song I sing again tonight



my dearest

oldest friend

were not here

I wept

with joy that I could praise my God


far from home

with sadness

my friend

that you are not here

celebrating with me


I remember years

we celebrated together

so long ago they seem

they are almost enough


I long to sing with you once more

the song we sang back then


Sing alleluia to the Lord!



For Richard, who is not dead

but the times we shared

are now long gone.


For Richard
