Papa Lincoln

 

 

The deathly silence
Stokes the still air
A heaviness falls on
Remembering gentry
It’s a century and fifty
To the day and hour
Papa Lincoln
So cruelly cut off
From us all

The faithful gather
In the precincts of
The ghastly deed
The Ford Theater
On behalf of the many
To remember and honor
The icon of our continued nation

Our gratefulness
Still etched in
Letters of gold
We pause to remember
What he did for us

That the government of the people
By the people, for the people
Shall never perish
From this earth

Papa Lincoln
Thanks
