Writer Highlight Featuring: Billy Charles Root

He worked his whole life to serve others
First to his Lord
Then his children and their mother

The secret heart of the man can be seen in his boots
His upright desire and do good roots

The dust of the field
The shale of the quarry
The grease from the shop
The stand all day story

They were never off his feet
The work was never done
As long as there were others
He was always on the run

Never complaining
He served with a smile
Never gave a second thought
To walking that extra mile

The memory of a man
Still tangible in the boots
The remembrance of his ways
And his upright desire and do good roots.
