My Friend Bob
My friend Bob is handsome and tall
he is always happy and on the ball.
He is Russian with light blue eyes
he always has a charming smile.
He always listens to me with a kind heart
he is a generous person which sets him apart.
He gives me newspaper clippings that are of cartoons
he is wishes me the best and hopes I get recognized soon.
He always has a kind thing to say
He sends a lot of joy my way.
He told me a family story I made into a poem
Entitled “Baby Saves The Day”
It’s a poem about his grandparents
A loving memory about Bob’s family fate
his Russian family made it to the states
a Bolshevik guard let them over the wired gate.
Bob is a kind and generous soul
He was a volunteer at the Lantana library
where the patrons will miss him so.
For Bob I will make sure I laminate this poem
Bob can proudly frame it and hang it in his home.
