OLD MAN'S FAREWELL
By Gerald J Tate

Words cannot express, my thanks to you
'Cause you always did, what you had to do
And even when, I abused your trust
My loyal friend, you never fussed

When I over indulged, and so many times
Behind the scene's, you held the lines
From young to old, you never altered
You gave me life, and never faltered

I cannot see you, you have no face
But you're always there, steady in pace
Always working from dusk to dawn
A reliable friend, I depend upon

You cannot hear, you cannot see
Yet still, you try so hard for me
I didn't help you, I must confess
But still you stayed, and did your best

But i'm old and grey now, it's the final bell
And if you had a hand, I would shake it well
So it's farewell my friend, now we must part
So I thank you for everything, my fine little heart
