The poem below was written by Lucien Fletcher himself,
just a few months before his death. It had no title, so cousin
[Juanita Thinnes] who sent it to me gave this poem it's title.

Lucien's Lament

"I have lived the best I could this life
that God has granted me.
And I know that to me God will be
good when the end of my life has
come to me.
Hold no blame to God or man for my
condition on this earth today.
For I know my suffering I must endure
to prove I am loyal in every way.

If I could only stand and walk as once
I did for hours each day.
It would bring great pleasure to my
aching heart to be engaged in
either work or play.
Bent like a criminal of the vilest type
I am confined as if behind steel bars.
And denied the sweetness of the bright
sunshine and the beauty of countless
twinkling stars.

My plight is awful to endure; to wile these
lonesome hours away-
but fate has willed and Iam sure God will
rescue me someday.
My advice to all on earth would be:
live loyal to [the] God of Right
And you will always have peace of mind
regardless of what may be your plight.

To my loyal friends I offer you the
appreciation of my lonely heart
and may God bless you all.
is my fervent prayer else from the earth
and friends you must depart.
The God of right in his merciful great will,
guide some friend to my lonely heart
to give me cheer in these lonesome
hours else from this life I must depart.

Written by Lucien Beauregard Fletcher
dated 16 October 1948
of Rosser, Kaufman Co., Texas

If anyone from Lucien's family finds this website.
Please contact me at the above email addres. I am very
interested in trying to find out more information about
Lucien's life and his families lives. I do not have many
photo's of Lucien's family, but I do have a few. Need help
in identifying some of the people in photographs taken at
Lucien's home between 1925 and 1930. Also in search of
a photo of Mollie and Bishop Clayton.

The above family has been merged between
Juanita Thinnes
