Small Stones: To My Friend Anthony


He was a good man
A strong man
A Godly man with a voice
That could break
Through the church walls,
When he sang, “Holy!  Holy!”

He was a good father
Who loved
His boys and his wife,
But he loved
God
Most of all.

Last week
He was folded into
The arms of Christ
And was led to God’s throne
Where he will sing
And break through the golden walls
Of heaven.
Holy!  Holy! Holy!

To my friend Anthony
