Darwin was a friend of the family for many years. He was always happy, always ready to greet his friends and family, and get on with life. He loved his family with a passion, and treated his step-children as his own. We miss him dearly. There will never be another Darwin. I wrote this poem for him and his family.
It's said the most beautiful things in life are free,
That's what my mother said to me,
Such glorious words I couldn't believe,
Could beautiful things really be free?
Not in my life, I thought to myself,
Just put that idea on the very top shelf,
You only get things with hard work and long labor,
Don't look for anything or anyone to do you a favor.
But then I saw the birds, clouds, and bees,
Look at the flowers, the animals, and trees,
There are mountains, valleys, lakes, and streams,
Wheat fields, pine boughs, and starlight that gleams.
My child's face, so sweet and so small,
My parent's laughter down the hall,
My husband's smile for no reason,
God's beauty shows in every season.
So the most beautiful things in life are free,
And they are the ones most special to me,
Given without cost or labor,
And no one ever asks for a favor.
