FUNERAL READINGS

Caring Thoughts

There is a seed
A grain of sand
That reminds us
Of a sister, brother
Parent or friend
That we knew well

These are our memories
Bittersweet in mind

We treasure recollections
On scraps of paper
In cupboards
At home
In the heart

And then one day
You see a feather
Hear a chord
Smell a fragrance
See a sunset
It seems
That special soul
Has touched you
Saying “Hang on a sec
Don’t worry
I’m here. You’re safe”
And then you know
There’s more to life
And death
Than memory
