I went to take the eight o'clock communion this morning. It was fine..even without David. .
His ashes are now in the vestry waiting to be buried. This is the best way I can explain how I feel now.
You died in the winter when the nights were long and dark
Only a few weeks later it is Spring
And light in the sky at supper time
You are missing it David
The returning of the light.
Where you are now it must always be light
You live now with the light of Christ
Shining through your dear eyes, your sweet face
I have scattered the seeds for the wild flower garden
But now it's up to you
Shine your light upon the hare bells, the primulas
And the daisies.
Keep them warm and sheltered from the storm
Enfold them in your loving arms as though they were me
And keep them safe as you did me. Amen
