Ivan Hunter

Just a quick look First chapter of a book First verse of a song Can’t stay overlong A 50-yard dash Gone in a flash Not right, not wrong Can’t stay overlong A heat seeking missile God blows the whistle God strikes the gong Can’t stay overlong... *Dedicated to my brother Ivan who lost his life on an airline training flight in 1984. 'Hunter' was his middle name...

wow, this is a very fine poem on your beloved brother. Short like his life. Sorry for your loss. Mine lost his life a year after yours.

A wonderful tribute for your brother. Sadness becomes a little easier to bear when shared.

I wasn't even going to log on this evening, and then I read your poem. Your verse is terse and so full of sorrow. I'm sorry, I know you never get over something like that. I lovely dedication. BG
