Song about my father, Emerson Ray Fuller, as we say in Texas, one helluva man.....

HE IS NEAR                               FEF             C 10/22/05


He raised his first family at the young age of 21

His mother and four siblings, his loving father was now gone

He kept them together as he faced down his own daunting fears

When you needed his firm guidance, he was near


He wedded my mother to grow his own family

Three children later, he was proud of his own prodigy

Tended the farm and built homes, his purpose was clear

When you felt his hands touch you softly, he was near


Then he married Miss Billye and started his third family

He was Paw Paw to many at top of his family tree

He helped shape the lives of relatives, friends and his peers

When you heard his quiet wisdom and knowledge, he was near


My Dad was a pillar and a man of integrity

He followed his heart, the truth and honesty

His soft voice and gentle  eyes of 91 years

When you remember all of these things, he is near
