You left quietly without a fuss

You always had a smile to share

A laugh, a joke

A time to care


A wonderful nature

Warm and true

These are the memories

I have of you


A beautiful life

Came to an end

You died as you lived

Everyone’s friend


You gave me year’s of happiness

Then sorrow came with tears

You left me lovely memories

I will treasure through the years


Dorothy Frances Gurney (1858 – 1932)
