    Default Annivesary for my Sister

    One year today!

    Sunset and evening star,
    And one clear call for me!
    And may there be no moaning of the bar,
    When I put out to sea,

    But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
    Too full for sound and foam,
    When that which drew from out the boundless deep
    Turns again home.

    Twilight and evening bell,
    And after that the dark!
    And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark;

    For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
    The flood may bear me far,
    I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    When I have crossed the bar.

    How very moving.
    When one door closes another one shuts, it must be the wind

    Heaven's Light

    The sun shines down upon us
    and gives us warmth and light.
    Then when the day has ended,
    it disappears from sight.

    Though we're left in darkness,
    we know the sun has not died,
    for it is shining brightly
    on the world's other side.

    So it is when one we love
    comes to their end of days.
    They just go to the other side
    to shine their loving rays.

    That's why heaven is a place
    that glows beyond compare.
    The lights of those who've left us
    are all brightly shining there.

    By Ron Tranmer


    Thoughts are with you and yours,
