Here is a poem by Steve Lynch

In Tribute to my Friend, Steve Picotte
From Steve Lynch, CGKA, Borden Dojo


Out on the street riding free
Looking over my shoulder to see
You are no longer with me
Why does this have to be

I will miss you, White Tiger

I will try to be strong for you my friend
‘Cause that's the way you would want me to be
I will not think of this as the end my friend
Cause I know you will watch over me

I will miss you, White Tiger

At an early age you had taken me under your wing
And showed me the things I now know
Our friendship is quite something
Why do you have to go

I will miss you, White Tiger

You will live with me for eternity
In my heart you will be
Brother, how I miss thee
Please come back to me

I will miss you, White Tiger

Now as I ride through life all alone
I will pass on what you have shown
As hard as it will be
I will do it for thee

I will miss you, White Tiger
