Sweet Carolyn

Corresponding to the song "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond When it began, All those years way back when All the poets like me, who knew you well You, touched our hearts And our hearts felt your warmth Who'd of believed you'd come along Hearts, touching hearts, reaching out Touching us, touching you Sweet Carolyn, our times never seemed so sad I've been inclined, to believe it never could, But now I Think of you gone Although we're saddened We can only smile, thinking of you Although we hurt, and hurting may last forever We can only smile, hurting for you Hearts, touching hearts, reaching out Touching you, touching us Sweet Carolyn, your presence touched us, clearly You will be missed so dearly Rest in peace, our sweet Carolyn *Dedicated to the very lovely Carolyn Devonshire May she rest in heavenly peace Tributes to Carolyn Poetry Contest Sponsor: Constance La France 8-13-2021

I love the creative way you paid tribute to her through the flow and tune of that famous song. I remember singing it in my youth and never knowing way back then that I would have a sweet Carolyn come into my own life.
