In memory of Earl Stueve my best friend in grade school. I have so many memories of Earl and his love for insects and animals. He was a small but mighty person and he was my best friend during those years. Even though our lives have taken us different directions I will always remember those times and what his friendship meant to me. Rest in Peace, my good friend.
I remember days when we
Were small and bounced on daddy’s knee
And then we went to school one day
And learned a different way to play.
I remember school friends when
We played and learned the meaning then
Of friendship, play and memories made
That last until this very day.
For friendship need not be a day
Or time when all we do or say
The feelings that we showed back then
When we were young and still best friends.
I will remember, always kept
Within my heart like when we met
On school ground swing set soaring high
Into that endless blue filled sky.
For you are now within that sky
No longer here, no longer nigh
But in my heart you’re memory so
Like when we played so long ago.
