Tribute to My Friend

They said you passed away
Only time would say
Some think death caught you in your prime
I know you left in your own maker's time

You were a gentleman fine and clean
Words never found your tomgue slippery but wise and gleam
Quiet but not silent, calm but not sloppy
Like still waters My friend ran deep

You thought me with humility and gentleness 
When a Maths so silly made me restless
You reassured me it was just a bump on the road
And putting my best it will be just anther victory story told

I plead to believe that you are and not gone
Though my heart is hollowed by you absence your memoties are as good
Until your leave you were my friend and brother
And I'll hold you so till you I find in forever
