To My Uncle Gerald...

To My Uncle Gerald…


My uncle Gerald—I will always

remember and miss,

For no one ever had an

 uncle like this!


I think back on the times we

 would spend together,

Talking about cars, the job,

his cat—or whatever…


He was there for a sense of

delight and enjoyment,

Even when he was without

his employment.


I’m thankful for the times we played

 Yahtzee and Aggravation. 

I will miss his “loud laughs”

 with much excitation.


My love will be with Gerald

—a special friend to me.

I know that one day in heaven,

 he’ll be there, waiting for me…






Jim A. Pemberton

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
