A Poem by : Brandy poole

I never even knew you
but deep inside I knew
you were out there waiting
for me to find you

days and months past
years flew by too
till that day
I finally found you

the grass was so green
the dirt so rich
there stood your headstone
with your name engraved in it

I couldn’t believe
to my surprise
you lay to rest
oh dear, oh my!!

my father so dear
I’m too late
God has taken you
to heaven above

I cried so softly
for my dad I never knew
oh why oh why
please tell me what to do

so many questions not answered
the things wanted to say
please God tell me
why did you take my daddy away

I have introduced the old family farm before but I just wanted to post some images that fill in some for impressions of the place. The farm has been worked on for many generations. Sadly its no longer lived in any more but we do our best to visit and keep the old place going….
