Within Hall Of Heroes His Soul Must Surely Be

Within Hall Of Heroes His Soul Must Surely Be Within Hall of Heroes his soul must surely be for courage and steadfastness surged in his veins this he truly lived for one and all to see he fought bravely for truth and right, not worldly gains! As teenage youth, I did such a great man befriend and discovered what a true blessing had been given I was away that day his life came to an end now mourn he that for honor had always striven. Years flown by as I look back at such a fine man a granite rock upon which any friend could rely I recall campfires fresh fish frying in a pan And will see his smiling face until day I die! Within Hall of Heroes his soul must surely be. Man that taught me, takes faith and courage to be free! Robert J. Lindley, 6-18-2020 Sonnet, Tribute- ( Treasures That Life Oft Gift Asking No Payment For )

It means everything to have a role model for a teen. I am happy you found a great man to guide you Robert. I also found a father like figure who showed me by example how to put others first and live a humble life. He has been gone over forty-five years now but I still hear him whisper his advice. I could really relate. Beautiful! Blessings xxoo

Your tribute to an obviously inspirational companion - a mentor ? - makes for a very fine sonnet, my friend.
