Poem For Paddy

Brian’s Song
Still makes me cry.
I am still truly thrilled
By Bridge Over the River Kwai.

E.T. still drives me 
To believe we can fly.
Freak, The Mighty lends me
The heart needed to live now
And to one day say goodbye.

I guess I forgot to grow up,
Once upon a time I wondered why.
Now I know my task to realize His Truth
Is carried easiest in the heart of a child.
