    A Poem in memory of Aunty Col……
    Time for me to go now, I won’t say goodbye;
    Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky.
    In the morning sunrise when all the world is new,
    Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.
    Time for me to leave you, I won’t say goodbye;
    Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky.
    In the evening sunset, when all the world is through,
    Just look for me and love me, and I’ll be close to you.
    It won’t be forever, the day will come and then
    My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again.
    Time for us to part now, we won’t say goodbye;
    Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky.
    Every waking moment, and all your whole life through
    Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.
    Just wish me to be near you,
    And I’ll be there with you.

    Love Tricia, Darren, Erynne and Joshua

  4. A Song of Anselm

    Jesus, as a mother you gather your people to you:
    You are gentle with us as a mother with her children;
    Often you weep over our sins and our pride:
    tenderly you draw us from hatred and judgement.
    You comfort us in sorrow and bind up our wounds:
    in sickness you nurse us,
    and with pure milk you feed us.
    Jesus, by your dying we are born to new life:
    by your anguish and labour we come forth in joy.
    Despair turns to hope through your sweet goodness:
    through your gentleness we find comfort in fear.
    Your warmth gives life to the dead:
    your touch makes sinners righteous.
    Lord Jesus, in your mercy heal us:
    in your love and tenderness remake us.
    In your compassion bring grace and forgiveness:
    for the beauty of heaven may your love prepare us.

    Anselm of Canterbury (1033 – 1109)
