Half The Man

If I could be
Just half of thee
What a difference I could make

If I thought like you
The things I could do
Your wisdom I would take

Your kindred heart
Sets you apart
And lends the world a chance

The words you spare
And love you share
Gives a reason to dance

Please take my hand
And help me stand
And look beyond today

Help me believe
That I can achieve
To be like you someday

By Alton Carter to honor Tom Carter and Bill Taggart
