Saying goodbye has never been my forte;

I want to keep everyone I know and love close to me,

But if ever you find yourself

In the position of saying goodbye,

To someone you love very much,

Who is leaving this world for another,

Then say it with grace and care,

Tell this person how much you have loved him or her,

And how much they will be missed,

But if they will look into the light,

There, once again, they’ll see

Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles,

Beloved friends

Who have made this journey before us

And will be waiting to help your loved one

Cross over.

Be not afraid

For the Holy Spirit is there

To lend a hand;

This is what I have said

To my sister,

To a dear friend,

To a friend’s daughter

And most recently

To my life partner

Of the last twenty-five years

Look for the light!
