The Cotton Candy Man

The Cotton Candy Man

A Poem by Horse of a Different Color

A follow up to 3-23-2008

The man that he was is no longer,
Pain from this loss is not forever.
Smiles and laughter soon regain our faces,
Pictures spread out all across the floor.
Places captured one moment at a time,
Forever loving were his hands.
From one to eight he watched his kids grow,
But nothing was stronger than his love for Jean.
Six decades together, Just short of eight on earth.
Even though your gone your love is still here,
With everyone you held near and dear.
The mourning is here and it is time to rest,
For the cotton candy man it is eternal peace.
Until such time does come that we meet again.
