    FOR RON WEE

    JD, YOU DID ASK SOME OF US,
    TO PEN A POEM OR TWO;
    TO HONOR RON, THE VETERAN,
    A MAN WE HARDLY KNEW.

    I TOOK IT AS A CHALLENGE,
    AND WORKED WITH WORDS AND LINES;
    I ASKED HOPE WHAT SHE THOUGHT OF IT,
    OR WAS I JUST SPENDING TIME.

    SHE TOLD ME “CHIEF, TO GO FOR IT”,
    I TOOK HER AT HER WILL;
    SO NOW I GATHER TRIBUTES FOR RON,
    MY WORDS CAN NOT BE STILL.

    RON, I SCARCELY KNEW YOU,
    A GENTLE MAN AND KIND;
    ALWAYS THERE TO HELP THE BOARD,
    WHEN WE GOT IN A BIND.

    THAT TIME YOU SENT ME PHOTOS,
    ‘BOUT CON THIEN AND TET;
    YOU SAID IT WASN’T NOTHING,
    I WROTE, “I’LL NOT FORGET”.




    NOW HERE, SHORT MONTHS LATER,
    THIS TRIBUTE I DO PAY;
    YOU’RE WALKING POINT, DEAR COMRADE,
    THE PATH WE’LL TAKE SOMEDAY.

    IF IN THIS LIFE OF TURMOIL,
    YOU LEFT THE MARK OF YOU;
    RON WEE, WE ALL DO SALUTE YOU,
    GOOD BYE RON WEE, ADIEU.
