“Farewell Young Scout”© is an Original Poem.
This poem, unlike the rest of my poems,
was written for a sad occasion –– namely –– the death of a Scout.
While there are no words that can comfort grieving parents,
I hope that in some small way this poem will let them know they
are part of the Scouting™ Family, and their child will be missed by all.

The poem will laser printed on your choice of background paper*

“Farewell Young Scout”©

When a boy puts on a uniform, he becomes a part
Of our Scouting Family and every Scouterís heart.

It does not really matter if heís in Our Pack[Troop] or Yours,
Scouting is one Famíly, from our borders to our shores.

When a Scout does something special, Scouting hearts all fill with Pride,
And all those hearts are broken when they hear a Scout has died.

We never know just where or when,or whom God next will choose
But it hurts us most when itís someone weíre not prepared to lose.

It seems itís human nature when we have to say ďGoodbyeĒ
To bow our heads and ask the Lord, “Why him, why now, Lord, why?”

For those of us left here on Earth, itís hard to understand,
But itís not for us to question the Wisdom of His plan.

Though we may never understand why this has come about,
Weíll miss you and we want to say, “Farewell to you, young Scout”.
