A Neighbor. Our poor aged father Has gone to rest, With his worn and withered Hands, folded upon his breast. Of course we miss the presence Of our father dear, Amd it will cause many a Heartache aand gushing tear. He passed away so quitly From this place of sorrow and pain; Oh,why,oh, why, should We wish for hom to remain? For there is a brighter place In the wonderful dazzling sky where we hope to meet him In the beautiful beyond, bye and bye.
