Your Unfinished, We Will

our beloved hero fallen.
for America’s autumn.
Our hero lost Presidential campaigns,
He often lost temper too, and
Almost his life, in Vietnam.
Yet his stature becomes towering
His voice heartfelt bellowing
Love, honor, courage,
A great man, a real man,
His parting words echoing
over this land,
across the oceans foaming.
Thank you, McCain,
For what you have sown,
with a devoted life of your own.
Gone is our hero, but never gone,
Your character, your dreams, your ideals,
Seeded in our hearts today,
Blossoming on spring prairies, before long.
We will do what you cared about the most,
To keep the City’ light shining, on the hill.
Keep laughing in the Heavens, Hero,
Rest in peace, your unfinished,
