I have a friend

I have a friend who loved to hangout play with kids ,I have a friend who loved us all so much it hurts are family how he served this country he loved and gave up to fight the ones who attacked are United States who sacrificed his life to serve for peace on this earth.

I have a friend who took care of are family when not sick

I have a friend who would do it all over again if he didn't pass unexpected fish , camp and sleep in are camper beds

I have a friend who took care of me like a dad when young

I have a friend my mom who's in tears a lot wish never ended soon

You might think I have many friends but I have one this is called a loved one at heart

I have a friend who's going to welcome are family when we get to where we're going there someday to have happy tears no pain or struggles anymore those who love him don't cry for him up there he is resting in his place where soldiers are at peace and angels sings amazing grace he is happy you let him free no trying to wake him from his sleep

I have a friend who loves the green grass and trees and works his life until it was over he loved to ride his corvette back and forth I call the country living life he lived

I have a friend who's waiting to say welcome your home to the family when it's are end but for now he's waiting at the heavens doors when it's my turn I be laying my body to the ground and be back to ash and dust again

I have a friend who be missed by all but glad he's in lords hands now and have angel wings

I have a friend who loved his pets brows and ford

I have a friend who would be happy If he had seen how deep I write so much I can't finish my poem until it's done he would say thank you for the love you gave me when I was here .

I have a friend who we all should tribute for his passing and give his wish where he wanted to lay to rest but sad he's won't be back to camp and fish over and over again but glad he served his life he lived back in the days he served for peace

I have a friend a loved one country living kind hunting fishing life I am going to miss but for now we are taking care of his pets until it's there end

I have a friend who loved his friend Bev next door neighbor who she called him hugging friend and had coffee and breakfast sometimes

I have a friend a loved one who lived on the dirt road the country side he took me every summer to spend some fun with him .

I have a friend who cooked for family when we visit menagha Mn up north breakfast lunch and dinner and baked as well .
I have a friend who came to every event I did Chior concerts and holiday traditions like Christmas or thanksgiving and or birthday parties, funerals and wedding he was in.

You might think this special someone might be a friend,son,husband, nephew , or dad or cousin but this friend a loved one we all knew is gone this love one I am referring to is grandpa Roland.
