I Once Knew A Man - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

I once knew a man
that gave me understanding,
in what each day can
when trials are commanding.

And what it is worth then
to make and continue on,
for testing shall come again
when all is made and gone.

We always had good luck
in everything to do,
and never really got stuck
to get life things through.

We worked so well around
in toughness times trials,
that we each other found
in pleasures true and smiles.

We never needed much
but we always came through,
and always were in touch
to make our friendship true.

But now times are changing
for my friend is now gone,
new times are now arranging
what we had lived and done.

Topic(s) of this poem: changes, life, luck
