My Friend Mick

I called him a Southern Jessie,
He called me a Northern Git.
We met at work years ago,
Our friendship an instant hit.

He went to the Lord on Friday,
Leaving Marion and the Boys.
He also left a friend behind,
Guess he didn't have a choice.

He leaves me with a Mick shaped hole,
That no one will ever fill
He encouraged me with his criticism, 
And respected mine of his.

I looked forward to reading his work, 
His mind took twists and turns.
He never had a bad word to say,
I'll miss him  from this day.

Mick, you were a good friend,
You will always be a good memory.
Rest in Peace.

    He was, and still is, my beloved friend, I still chat to his dear wife Marian. He was and still is, inspirational to me , he helped me in all my writing, in stories, in poetry, by his comments. God Bless. D.

    Lovely - How sad to lose a really good friend. I think friends such as this are few and far between and there is such a big hole in your life when they go. True friendship is hard to find. I'm so sorry Dave.
