My Father’s Friend


I met a stranger who knew me

He said my words had touched his heart

And when it came time for him to move on

It was those words that would not depart


His eyes spoke the secret of a faraway past

and although our friendship could not last

He will carry with him along his way

The words I chose to speak that day
