Oh Joshua


Oh Joshua, where have you gone?


Have you gone overseas, while your students look on?

Have you gone to catch the sun with your energy wand?

Have you gone to build great edifices in the sky?

Have you gone to plant a tree that will grow high?

Have you gone to the library, to research a great book?

Have you gathered them ‘round, your presentation to look?

Have you gone to the “Y”, a young boy to mentor?

Have you gone the extra mile, your family front and center?


Oh Joshua, we know where you’ve gone.

With Robert, Barbara, Mickey, and John.


In Memory of Dr. Joshua Hill, Sr. 6/5/1944-5/27/2001
