The Number One
One match lit bright,
one candle yellow light,
one life, one day, one boat sail away.
2nd May forever changed.
So we will shine a light -
window sill and lantern high,
torch and lamp and starry night,
stone and field and cliff and beach and sky.
Tallest, strongest lighthouse standing bright.
Beacons of light -
strung from here to far and wide,
east and west and north and south,
further than you ever sought to find...
We will always remember.
Yours is a light which will never go out... x
For Jennie, David, Esther & William - on this and every 2nd May.
Today I'm linking this post to a collection of messages on Susanne's blog.
I am also linking to Prose For Thought.
An online auction in memory of Matilda Mae and in support of The Lullaby Trust
begins on 11th May and runs for 9 days. You can find out more about this here.
