Happy The Man
In memory of Bill Wells
Happy the man, and happy he alone,
He who can call today his own:
He who, secure within, can say,
Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.
Be fair or foul or rain or shine
The joys I have possessed, in spite of fate, are mine.
Not Heaven itself upon the past has power,
But what has been, has been, and I have had my hour.
In loving memory of Bill, 1946 - 2011. Sleep gently friend.
Chosen by Bill's son Kirk to be read at his funeral
