Mr. White

He lived next door

I saw him

Almost every day

He always had a smile

And a friendly word

Then I moved away

And almost forgot him

Today I saw his picture

And I finally

Learned his story

His family was all gone

His wife passed before him

His child died from cancer

He gave to the community

He was a veteran of Vietnam

We once were neighbors

And I had never known

All the pain in his life

He always was so positive

I was sad to read

He died at 67…
