DOUG ‘N’ ME
C. Douglas “Doc” Caffey: Biloxi, Mississippi, 2004There’s a vet from World War Two
Whom I count among the very few
Fair dinkum friends I’ve ever made;
A special bloke of highest grade.
Of all the places we could have met
It was actually on the internet
He’d sent a poem for me to read;
Thus was sown our friendship’s seed.
Our words flew over cyber-space.
We hadn’t yet met face-to-face
but trust and understanding grew
and meet we must, we both knew.
In late June, two thousand four
I decided to knock upon his door.
From wars and countries far apart,
We looked into each other’s heart
We found a union of heart and mind
that helped us leave our pain behind.
Our friendship continues strong and pure
And will, God willing, always endure.
