Harold smiled in Heaven today.
I know he did; for sure.
Although unsure that I believe,
There is no doubt he did.

His Dedham cup sat on the bar,
Dry and cracked, unused.
It once by sink accepted drafts,
Oft sipped and supped it'd be.

Harold, you've had enough, she'd say.
Just another sip of-----coffee(royale),
With splash of urn and clink of flask;
Smack of lips and pleasured sigh.

Sink dipping again we'd smile and say
He's old and past, with pleasures
Few. He's bored, retired, less pride.
And then he died. His time was gone we said.

Take what you want of his, she said,
To remember your father by.
A kind, quiet, distant man, caring but
unable to show, oft gone to see his patients still.

These thoughts to mind returned last night.
Let's have a drink to end the day. My
Jigger damp with whiskey yet, turned up
To drip in Harold's cup.

Was that a sigh, a gustitory grin,
I felt, or sensed, or heard? An
Errie image flashed up on my eye,
A certainty-----I knew he smiled.

-Composed by eldest son,
Dr. Ripley Harold Hunter Jr.
