Memorial of Candy

Memorial of Candy My memories of knowing him So many years ago As the father of my two oldest children I’ll remember the thoughts that glow Though a lot of times were not so good I choose to let go of the bad Look back with me if you would Through a few of the good time he had His mother who worried of him the most Of what he would do when she departed Is now again with him so close Sharing the spiritual life that has started With him being the second born His oldest sister recalled the joy With his first name being so long Most of the family just called him boy He would tagalong right by her side As directed by their grandmother And she always carried a lot of pride That everyone knew he was her brother Those who knew him well would say They’d prefer to be on his good side As he valued his friendships in a special way With loyalty, protection and pride Always willing to lend a helping hand To family and friends in need With a heavy load or to take a stand Whatever the case may be Some of you may even recall The days of marbles, fishing and sticker burr fights Or the games played in the field like baseball And hide-n-seek in the neighborhood even at night Some remember his laughter more When he made others laugh too Even if they didn’t know what the laughter was for Because of that high pitch giggle he would do This poem was written for his family To cherish the good times they shared To wish him peace in his spirituality And to touch the hearts of all who cared Florence McMillian (Flo)
