NUNC DIMITIS

By 18th June 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

Here, let me sleep.
Quiet, in this place of peace and memory.
Here let me rest.
Free from the pain, the fear, the sympathy.

I shall rest quietly here,
For I have lived my life.
So short a time, blessed in so many ways.
Now, as I sleep, remember happy days.

Plant here a tree.
And when it comes to leaf
Share in its joy – my joy.
Let peace replace your grief.
