On A Friend
(In Loving Memory Poems)

An honest man
here lies at rest ..
As ever God with
his image blest!

The friend of man
the friend of truth ..
The friend of age
and guide of youth.

Few hearts like his
with virtue warm’d ..
Few heads with knowledge
so inform’d

If there’s another world
he lives in bliss ..
If there is none
he made the best of this.

– Robbie Burns
