Lost Soul Every man plans A York he shall be But that plan May not stand, If even holy and free Even filled with passion and desire This plan is of chance When faced with hostile fire This burden and Scarlet Letter Will haunt him to days end When willing to lay his life For an unexpected friend So when perplexed, gasp with wonder How your grandfather, Made you sit and ponder He carries this eternal scare That like his comrades He didn’t get to go that far “What Would Jesus Do?” that would be the question Jonathon would ask. Jonathon, loved everyone unconditionally, but his greatest love was his family. They were his foundation on his journey in life. He found encouragement from his family, to take the road less traveled and couldn’t wait to share it with them.
