Dan "Dutch" Elmer

August 7, 1949 — April 16, 2021

Does everyone know
What’s behind the fake smiles
The memories that go on for miles
The lifetime of hunting
Oh, the stories I’d tell
Give me your hand, mine needs to be held
Don’t say goodbye
It leaves me no hope
Give me your hand, “kaleidoscope”
Think of me often
I’m hot, now I’m cold
Come close and give me your hand to hold
Don’t cry for me
Wipe your tears away
If I could stay you know I would stay
When missing me 
I’ll always be near
Think of me “kaleidoscope” you will hear
