That's beautiful, Pinky.



I can't write poetry but I thought of a song from a band I know

Cat loved, so I'll share that:



Ripple

lyrics by Robert Hunter





If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine

And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,

Would you hear my voice come thru the music,

Would you hold it near as it were your own?



It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,

Perhaps they're better left unsung.

I don't know, don't really care

Let there be songs to fill the air.



Ripple in still water,

When there is no pebble tossed,

Nor wind to blow.



Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,

If your cup is full may it be again,

Let it be known there is a fountain,

That was not made by the hands of men.



There is a road, no simple highway,

Between the dawn and the dark of night,

And if you go no one may follow,

That path is for your steps alone.



Ripple in still water,

When there is no pebble tossed,

Nor wind to blow.



But if you fall you fall alone,

If you should stand then who's to guide you?

If I knew the way I would take you home.



La dee da da da, La da da da da, Da da da, Da da, Da da da da da

La da da da, La da da, Da da, La da da da, La da, Da da.

That's so very beautiful and touching... for a very beautiful woman.

It's just so sudden... and I was just talking to her... it's all the more sad that she was so young and full of life.

She was so beautiful. I know the pictures I saw don't lie.

Pinky wrote: So hard to believe you're gone

too hard to accept

struggling in the ocean of tears

that we all have wept.

It seems so unjust.

So cruel I want to scream

I wish I could wake now

from this terrible dream.

You were a whirlwind

a ray of warm sun

sheer kindness itself

and such good fun.

You brought happiness with you

wherever you went

touched so many people,

you were heaven sent.

I hope you knew

how much of a spark

you were, a glowing flame

that lit up the dark.

I will carry your memory

with me, a piece of the divine

so part of you will live

and your light will always shine.


Very moving and very, very beautiful Pinky

A friend is like a flower,

a rose to be exact,

Or maybe like a brand new gate

that never comes unlatched.

A friend is like an owl,

both beautiful and wise.

Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost,

whose spirit never dies.

A friend is like a heart that goes

strong until the end.

Where would we be in this world

if we didn't have a friend.

I haven't got any poetic talents but this poem was sent to me after losing a friend and I think it is appropriate for CC:-4







HER JOURNEY'S JUST BEGUN

by Ellen Brenneman

Don't think of her as gone away -

her journey's just begun,

life holds so many facets -

this earth is only one.

Just think of her as resting

from the sorrows and the tears

in a place of warmth and comfort

where there are no days and years.

Think how she must be wishing

that we could know today

how nothing but our sadness

can really pass away. And think of her as living

In the hearts of those she touched

For nothing loved is ever lost -

And she was loved so much.
