Mr H

Jacob

There are few on this Earth that could walk through fire.

To carry themselves well when the fates conspire. 

You have proven yourself true when a lesser man would brake.

Much younger than me and you've taken more than I could take.

I was there the day when they called the emergency alarm.

Was present at the meeting they announced you lost your arm.

They say time heals all wounds and it sure has been a while.

Still sometimes I feel amazed at how much I see you smile.

You're a good man, a good worker, and a damn good friend.

It's great to have you around. I'll stand with you until the end.

  • Comment from author about the poem: My inspiration for this poem was a guy I work with that lost his arm in a workplace accident. Everytime you're around the guy he would just brighten your day no matter who you are. I love being around people like this. You got a man who's got every reason in the world to be pissed off all the time, but he carries himself well, because he knows he has better days ahead of him.
