A Story to Tell



A STORY TO TELL

 

A Story to Tell

 

Each wrinkle pressed upon his brow

Has a story of its own to tell.

 

The pinstriped suits that he always wore

Were from Sears and Roebuck, 1904.

 

The Model A Ford which he drove now and then

Was the envoy of all back in 1910.

 

World War I was bad and it left its place

Crippling his legs and slowing his pace.

 

See his knuckles so callused and hard

His heart was gentle but his life was scarred.

 

And see the sadness in his eyes

That's what happens when true love dies.

 

Each moment lived, he remembers so well

Yes folks, he has quite a story to tell.

 

In his pinstriped suit and no one to care

He quietly pass on, in an answer to prayer.
