We Are Fortunate

We have our lives,

our times,

our moments we might recall.

We have our loves,

our eyes,

our desire to be understood.

We have our time,

some may respond destiny,

another might suggest a plan,

in every aspect of our being,

we do design our world

without knowledge of a span.

I knew a man, I know a man,

I know a grandfather, a beautiful father,

a friend, a laughter,

a certain genuine kindness in Man.

He gave his heart to all of us,

in reflection will we think of him,

in a manner without all the fuss,

his peace is now in the hands of Him.

-in dedication to the life of Jimmy Gullickson, our friend
