Benjamin Wheeler


Benjamin fills our bodies with warmth and love.
As he swims through the coldness to bring us happiness.

He will get us soaked but Benjamin's smile will dry up all our pain.
As he meets some of the Beatle members in Heaven.

The lighthouses will then light up the ocean.
For a bright and spirited boy has swam into the arms of the Lord.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
