The Honorable Man
(In Loving Memory Poems)

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

For this is the means
to measure mans worth ..
How he conducted his life
and regarded his earth.

Not what of his riches
nor of his breed ..
But was he generous
or suffer with greed.

Was he gentle and friendly
with a helpful hand ..
Did he leave this earth
an honorable man?
