For Mum and Dad (22nd May 2022)
A candle burns, flickering gaily,
Memories whisper in my mind,
Two souls united, never again parted,
Having left their Earth Life behind.
The topper hearts spin, dancing lights on the ceiling,
Gentle music is heard in my head
Breaking the silence of a new day dawning,
As I lay alone in my bed.
Life is so precious, we take it for granted
Then one day, it’s suddenly gone,
Melancholy lingers, smiles and the laughter
Remembering when happiness shone.
Wisps of smoke raise their gift to the heavens,
Each one a kiss from me to them,
Always together, forever in my heart
Until the day we shall meet again.
