kenneth elmer finley, rest in peace.











all those days with you had an effect on me
that cannot be quantified
only memorized 
you always had the right song
in your head
you would whistle
instead of the radio
or sing an old song
all along, you had the years
and quiet opinions and disposition
of one who saw what was to be seen
you, a keen listener
a grandfather
a friendship of years apart
a generation skips
to find itself again
never in the children
maybe in your children's children.
