Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Otto W. Runde

Rest in peace Deputy Sheriff Runde. This day was my dad's 13th birthday. He too was a long time New York City police officer

Going Back

If I could go back through the years
And find all that my heart holds dear,

If I could lift this veil of tears, and
Know that you are here,

If I cold feel your kiss and hold
You in my arms again

Each moment, a priceless pearl to me
I would give all there's yet to be,
For one embrace
But could I let you return to space?
Perhaps, If I close my eyes, but go quickly,
Lest my cries, disturb your flight.

A birds sweet song, high in a tree
And I knew it was meant for me.

--Lillian Ann Runde
