Medium Poems

1. “Gone Fishing”

Gone fishing, they say,
But where have you gone?
The river runs clear,
But your boat has moved on.

Your line never tangles,
Your bait always fresh,
You were a true fisherman,
The best of the best.

The fish may still swim,
The sun may still shine,
But without you here,
It feels like a crime.

So cast your line up above,
And catch a few stars,
We’ll think of you fondly,
As we scatter your ashes afar.

2. “The River of Memories”

The river flows gently,
Just as your life did,
It winds and it twists,
Just as yours always did.

Your boat may have sunk,
But your spirit lives on,
Amongst the fish and the trees,
And the wide open dawn.

The river of memories,
Will carry you home,
As we say our goodbyes,
And let go all alone.

You were a fisherman,
And a friend to us all,
We’ll miss you dearly,
As we let you go and fall.

Rest in peace, dear friend,
And catch many fish,
In the river of memories,
Where you’ll never diminish.

3. “A Fisherman’s Tale”

A fisherman’s tale,
Is like no other,
A story so grand,
It will make you wonder.

Of the one that got away,
Or the one that was caught,
Of the ones that were big,
Or the ones that were not.

We’ll remember your stories,
And we’ll pass them on,
The one with the big one,
The one that weighed a ton.

You were a fisherman,
Through and through,
And we’ll always remember,
The great things you knew.

So sail on, dear friend,
And catch us a good one,
And until we meet again,
Your legend will never be done.

Long Poems

Requiem for a Fisherman

In a world of water, he cast his line
A patient fisherman, both wise and kind
With rod in hand and hope in heart
He’d brave the wind and wavy start

From dawn till dusk, he’d stay afloat
Against the tides, he’d row his boat
And as he cast his baited hook
He’d sit and wait, with thoughtful look

The water’s calm, the fish serene
A world apart, a tranquil dream
With just the sound of rippling wave
And nature’s peace, a life to crave

But in the darkness, rough and wild
The fisherman met his final trial
A stormy sea, a fateful gale
His life cut short, a final tale

Yet in his passing, we must recall
The joy he found in life and all
The memories shared, the stories told
How he lived his life, both brave and bold

For every fish he caught, he released
A selfless act, a kind hearted peace
And though he’s gone, his spirit lives
Through every fish he caught and gave

So let us gather, to say goodbye
To a life well lived, beneath the sky
With tears of sorrow and hearts of gold
We bid farewell, to a fisherman bold.
