Ode to T K


The loss of T K was so sudden and oh so sad
to know my "good buddy" made me quite glad
to all the guys who knew him so well
I think all of us thought he was just so swell

As a veteran in the Navy he did a great deed
duty in the “silent service” takes a special breed
a humble proud man with a brilliant mind
and a real character most of the time

The numerous stories he shared most all the time
I’d say we are playing golf and we are falling behind
we talked family history, he taught me a thing or two
he showed me some papers and said we are related too!

He explained the process and it made little sense to me
I hope it's not why the good Lord took him home to Thee
T K was a fun golf buddy and historian extraordinaire
I think he helped row Washington across the Delaware

Although I knew him for a very short time
he was a real good guy and a friend of mine
this life he lived not merely survived
I think he is up playing golf in his home on High!
