The Last Time I See Him

The last time i see him he was walking on Sturt Street
I little thought then that him i would never more meet
That life can be  cruel on some it does seem so
He died of a heart attack ten years ago
In his  mid twenties married without children his wife for him in tears
Her sense of loss remain with her for years
He was quite a nice  young man one worthy of recall
For his local club in Ballarat he played Australian Rules Football
A true sportsman even liked by opponents in the oval of play
He is remembered and missed by the club fans today
Of him anyone did not have a negative word for to say
For  to help others he often went out of his way
Never for to be seen in Ballarat again
In those who knew him fond memories of the good man remain.
