  • “ got a real nice place here, son.”
    Which is as close as he could ever get
    to saying I love you.

    (from Treasured Souvenirs by Ray Neighbor)

    In passing he hinted he was rich.
    That wealth had accumulated over time.

    An entire fortune stashed away,
    he lived off the earnings it provided
    wisely close to the heart.
