A Lincolnshire Lad

Don is my cousin
That will never change.
When we meet in heaven,
It will be just the same.
We always met in friendship
With a smile on each face
A heart felt welcome
That made everything OK.
He was like my elder brother,
The one I never had.
My hero from the army
When I was just a little lad
According to our wives.
We are very much alike
Both difficult to live with.
But we know that can not be right.
To me he was someone special
That, I can not deny,
So someone very special
Can never ever die.
