To Shaun


tonight my friend you made me proud

that I could call you friend

seeing you where once I stood

serving Him as I once served

giving tribute to our God


if this be the passing of a torch

from prideful hands to you

then God has chosen well

and I am pleased

to see the choice that He has made


if not the passing of a torch

but a step upon your road

then God is guiding well

and I am pleased

to see the man that He is making


my friend

closest and best of many years

may the God whose grace has saved us both

be your guide throughout your days

may your choice be always Him


To Shaun
