In memory of my Father in Law: Gordon Shears.


MY PAL GORDON: by Ben Dunk.   September 26th. 2002.


The moment came

The spirit passes

No longer home

With happy glasses


The empty air

The tears falling

A vacant chair

No one calling


No super fame

An able life

Living the game

Of grief and strife


The span was long

The human term

Work always done

By duty’s norm


His ready wit

His family tie

A constant rite

Of love gone by


Goodbye my friend

I loved you well

For all our time

You were my pal
