Today …You made me laugh out loud
Today ….You made me shed a tear
Today ….You heard me say thank you
Today ….You made me feel gratitude
Today …. You made me feel your presence
Today ….Like you has now turned into yesterday
‘Memorial’ Poem by Roma Parry
Yesterday a handful of folks helped me arrange a memorial afternoon tea for Hilary, for all the village to attend. It was a beautiful late summers afternoon, as the sun streamed in through the windows, filling the village hall with light, I stood back and took in the scene, groups of folks were stood chatting, there was joy, the old couple were sat in quiet contemplation, there was the odd tear, yet through it all I was aware of a golden thread that bound each one of us by the actions of one person.
