Loss of a Friend Poem

Remembering my friend and co-worker, Bob Long - who died suddenly at the age of 51. Bob was loved by all. He was such a humorous guy - kept everyone laughing even during stressful times. He will be missed forever by his family, friends, co-workers, and especially his sweet wife, Nancy.

When I heard that you had left us
I was simply blown away
How could that be possible?
We were laughing yesterday.

Your dry wit and your humor
Your grin and devilish smile
No one knew what you'd do next
You had one unique style!

Oh, how I'd anticipate you
Clocking in on second shift
How I waited for your quips
You had a truly special gift.

Always there for everyone
So dependable, sincere
Kind, gentle, and caring
Felt good to have you near.

So, my dear departed friend
I'll think of you each day
Peace and rest and comfort
I hope you've found today.

Your last words to me
Will help my tears to dry
You punched my arm and said,
"Hey...see ya, love ya, bye!"
