Not, How Did He Die, But How Did He Live
(Sympathy Memorial Poems)

Not how did he die
but how did he live? ..
Not what did he gain
but what did he give?

These are the units
to measure the worth ..
of a man as a man
regardless of birth.

Not, what was his church
nor what was his creed? ..
But had he befriended
those really in need?

Was he ever ready
with word of good cheer ..
to bring back a smile
to banish a tear?

Not what did the sketch
in the newspaper say ..
but how many were sorry
when he passed away.
