Dear Tate

Written by: Patricia Opel Jaye

For all the time I knew I always loved you I always thought of you
 meant so much to me when you left it hurt me I never knew
how tall you are how smart you are I wish I have heard some of

the things you said the way you expressed your many thoughts
you are the kind of man many dream and hope for you left behind
a world of hope you left me with a reason to dream what I mean

I am so glad that I know a man name James Edward Tate you 
saved my life not just the day we met as I saw your celebration
I couldn't help but notice your smile your dedication I will always
keep you in my heart with love

This poem is dedicated in loving memory of James E. Tate
