BJ - Big John

For my Dad, one of his nicknames was B.J. for Big John.


                      B.J.

     His battle flag encased for now..,
        his smile now gone from sight
     T'is time to bid a fond farewell..,
        this good man got thing's right
     Made peace.. and flew on wondrous wing's..,
        to paradise above
     A hand salute to you my friend..,
        you always have our love
     You'll finally get those answer's..,
        to question's bout the past
     Thing's we always talked about..,
        are waiting there at last
     We'll think of you.. and ay.. some tear's..,
        but never for too long
     See.. your singing.. and your smiling..,
        to Frankie's his way..song
     So now it's taps.. the last farewell..,
        until we meet again
     When all time's gone.. a great big hug..,
        and ask.. just were you've been
     His battle flag encased for now..,
        his smile.. now gone from sight
     T'is time to bid a fond farewell..,
        this good man got thing's right
