LONER OF A MAN

 He saw the sun but when the sun went down,

 He wanted nothing more of that which was around.

 Heading for the great Colorado Rocky mountains 
 Said he,

 I will not be back until I see a land of eternity.

 A long time ago, this man not many would know,

 As for the few, he treated them with kindness, 
 They would not forget.

 A loner of a man, no choice to love and care, an 
 Inherited family,

 Because he did help another kind, they took from him 
 The love in his life.

 He wanted to be alone and he learned to care, again 
 Only pain and despair,

 A mountain man you see, he had a life, until life met 
                         Keith Garrett
