Get Rid Of The Advertisements

My Best Friend - Challenge
 
You would have loved her!
Gertrude
They named her.
Gertrude
No rhythmic beat to it
So not yet set to a melody by Nelson Riddle
To be sung ny Frank Sinatra
No sweet notes of lyric phrases by Paul Williams
Or Stevie Wonder...
Even Beethoven wrote no classical music score,
Keats nor Frost wrote the name in rhyme...
Being before her time, they knew nothing of her.
Gertrude,
Shortened 'Gerty'
But either way she was Lady Love,
Lady Wisdom,
Lady with heart so big
It must have encompassed the world.
Treasured friend,
Met her yesterday when we and the world
Were younger.
Now sixty years hence,
I offer no rhyme
Or musical score
No melody and
Without pretentious flare
I whiched her love
In abundance
and happiness
Always.

Midi - I Will Remember You
