I once knew of a handyman
whose work was never done,
who always had a project completed,
so he could start on another one.
The hands that he possessed were strong,
yet gentle to the touch,
his advice on how to do things
always meant so much.
He not only crafted material things
but build good feelings from inside,
he loved his work, he loved his life,
and he will always be thought of with pride.
There are many things standing in place
to remind us of his skill,
just as he built a place in our hearts,
and live there he always will.
The handyman has left now,
but his work is still not done,
he's gone to join the Master Craftsman,
and work on each rising and setting sun.
