Old Larry

Everytime he does smile one can see the gap in his teeth
Old Larry a fellow i sometimes does meet
The saying as Happy as Larry to him does apply
Wherever he is happiness is nearby
A few years ago to cancer Larry lost Jane his devoted wife
The mother of his children and the love of his life
The day of her funeral his saddest day
But that time heals all sorrows it does seem this way
A grandfather in his late seventies he now lives on his own
But he never talks of the sadness he has known
Looking well for his age though his hair silver gray
A smile from his face never that far away
A down to earth fellow free of any guile
The gap in his teeth shows each time he does smile.
