Our Turn

Our Turn


So tomorrow’s the day we all will cry

We must go on so now we’ll try

To celebrate the moments of your life

While we console your grieving wife

Too many times we follow the trend

And turn in pain to our friends

And cry together, our arms entwined

While we wait for our turn to die


Rest in Peace, Larry


Tim Keen


About timkeen40

When I was seven, I opened one of those little Golden Books (Lassie) and started copying the words down on paper and it set my soul on fire. I have been writing ever since. I don't know where this is going but I invite you along on the journey.

    We all get there sooner or later. Sorry for the loss of your cousin.

  3. A very moving poem Tim in tribute to Larry. Pain through grief is hard to bare. Time is a healer. But we never forget the loss or completely fill the space they filled. Sending you and your Wife my heartfelt thoughts

    Wow, don’t know you, don’t know your cousin, but through your poem I absolutely felt your pain. Beautifully done

      Tina, that is the best compliment a writer can ever receive. The only reason a person writes is to share, to make someone else feel what the writer is feeling, to connect.

      Thanks for connecting.
