The Man Who Loved Women Was Buried Today

Poem By Francis Duggan

The man who loved women was buried today
Amongst the departed his remains now lay
He was only forty five cancer on him took toll
Our destiny in life is beyond our control.

He loved the four women he had in his life
His three lovely daughters and their mother his beautiful wife
Today by his grave they wept their farewell tears
The grief of loss in them will live on for years.

The man who loved women was loving and kind
And as good a man as him would be hard to find
A humble non macho man without conceit
A nice person to know and a pleasure to meet.

Of his wife and his daughters he felt a quiet pride
And 'tis so sad to think that the good man has died
His parting from life was a slow painful release
And amongst the departed he now rests in peace.

And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow

And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
