FUNERAL READINGS: Choose a Reading

Wistful Nostalgia

Your era
Was picturesque
Innocent and fresh
No wonder
You looked back

The warbling
Crystal clarity
Of Doris Day
The excitement
Of a first date
Memorable items
A new dress
That lifted the mood
A red sports car
Admired by all

The strength
And the sorrow
Of a world war
Then an era of peace
Big band music
And us
Vicarious viewers
Of a golden age

Black and white prints
Or garish colour
Smiling faces
Of strangers
Long gone
Full of sunshine

You occupied
A world where
So much less
Meant so much more

You didn’t mind
Saying goodbye
To this time
Your heart took you
And your spirit
Moved on
To a place of longing
And good companionship
