On The Passing Of Gerard Dromey - Poem by Francis Duggan

I remember Gerard from the Millstreet Convent school he was sensitive and shy
Since then near six decades in time has ticked on by
But from the Millstreet Boys Primary School him i cannot recall
My memory at times not the best and does not serve me well at all
The sad news of his passing did take me to the past
To my fledgling years decades ago how time does tick on fast
Those i grew up with in years getting on and have known a better day
And some of them Gerard Dromey one with the departed lay
By all accounts a decent soul one who led a good life
Kind to his friends and devoted to his children and his wife
One who remained true to those dear to him and one who never sought renown
He will be missed in Murphy's Terrace and likewise Millstreet Town
Though for each of us a final Fall and a final night and day
One more good person lost to Millstreet Town that would seem fair to say.
