Giovanni the kind
is no more
he has gone
to a place
where his soul
will rest in peace
he was 78
so many times
for over 25 years
I said hello and he smiled
For so many years
He fixed my brace
And we spoke about
Common issues
He always with a soft voice
Never had a harsh word
About the world
From Sicily to Brazil
To San Francisco
And now back to Sicily
Where his remains
Will be interred
In the land of his Fathers
We will miss Giovanni
we bid you farewell
Go Rest In Peace
Until we meet again
