The ones we can’t forget…

Sometimes there are people
Who you just can’t forget
They make an impact on your life
And often change your mindset

What makes them unforgettable
Is that they’re always there
And by lending a listening ear
They show how much they care

They’re the ones who spread encouragement
The kind who give us hope
And on the days spent without them
It’s often hard to cope

We can search our whole lives
Just to find even one
Because a rapport like this
Just can’t be outdone

And so when we’re blessed
With such a mate
We must hold tight
For it’s surely fate

And with each new day
We appreciate them more
Because we know they’re far beyond
What we could ever ask for

Maddigan Brown

There are some people
You just never forget
Usually they’re strange
Or full of vile and wit

Maddigan Brown
Was one of those boys
Always goofing around
Making some noise

The teachers all sneered at him
Rolling their eyes
He couldn’t do anything
Without being chastised

But Maddigan didn’t care
He craved the attention
Even when his behavior
Got him thrown in detention

He was a stranger to me
But someone I wish I could have met
For he was a legend in his time
Someone nobody will forget
