I am retired and led a small band named Graywood. The band no longer exist due to age and deaths. I wrote many country music songs that we played. Let me know what you think. rgm441228@gmail.com

Tribute To A Friend	  By Richard Martin		177

I once met a man who I enjoyed talking with 
And through the years we became friends
He passed away today and it saddens me to see him go
He was a man of his word, and he took that to his end

You didn’t need a contract with him
Just a smile and a shake of his hand
Your word to him was all that he needed
That was a contract known by this man

He never broke his word with you
And forgave the ones that broke theirs with him
He believed in what was right 
For him, there’s no other way

I never told him how much he meant to me
I  only hoped that he knew
I so much enjoyed living next door to him
Friends like that are very, few

I hope to see him again when my days are finally through
I’m proud to say, Lester was my friend
The best friend I ever knew
