A Kind and Curious Man

I knew a man who would not lie.
He would not say a thing untrue;
And if one swayed him to reply
In words he did not choose …
He would not say a thing untrue.

As his life unfolded
And his kindness grew,
He spoke in words of gentleness
Speaking only what he knew,
What he knew to be the truth.

Words will come, and words will go,
And rarely be remembered;
But in due and honest diligence,
In kindness and in truth,
With time, his legend grew …

The legend of a man
A kind and curious man,
A man who would not lie,
Who would not say
A thing untrue.
