Welcome to my new website and blog.
I plan to keep you informed on interesting spiritual topics.
I will start with a poem written by David Harkins to honour loved ones.
It was quoted at the Queen Mother’s funeral.
You can shed a tear that she is gone
or you can smile that she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back
or you can open your eyes and see that she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she has gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you could do what she’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
