Keith Glenn - Poem by kevin glenn

yesterday was the day we lay my dad to Rest,
A husband to my mum and a father to his kids,
A friend to you all and a loveble rouge,
With a heart as big as a tree,
though sometimes it didn't show,

He like to do a deal make a few quid here and there,
Buying Old tables and the odd rickety chair,
He'd stand at the bar and buy anyone a drink,
There wasn't any one who didn't know him,
Especially in allestree,

Now don't get me wrong a swine he could be,
But he would never mean any harm to you or to me,
His life was not easy Especially in the end,
As he suffered with his illness they could not mend

But one things for sure he's better where he is,
With both of his kidney and both of his legs,
He's still with his family looking down from above,
With those who past before him that he missed so much,

So this is not good bye in a spiritual sense,
As I hope he will guide me until we meet again,

    Hi Kevin, he was my uncle keith and I loved him to bits. He was funny, and cheeky and hansome and kind, and as you so rightly describe, a bit of a rogue too, but never a man to wish harm to anyone. He was a writer also, and I look forward to reading some of his prose sometime. It seems to run through this grieving family of ours like quicksilver.

    He will be up there with mum and nanna and all the rest of our departed clan, cheering and willing us kin, to take care of one another and keep their genes moving on and into happy futures.

    Me and the boys down here were deeply saddened to hear of his loss.

    Much love to the family

    from, bobby and boys in Cornwall x
