In Memoriam Of Their Serenity - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

I like to sleep again in a cradle.
Where is my perambulator?
I lost my feeding bottle
and the bootees are not fit now.
My beautiful mom who was the protectress
of this fawn.
When I crawl you gave me your big hand
my handsome dad.
Where did you go with my poor mom?
It's unbelievable,
When I take my children to school in the morning
I see both of you through the mist at the handrail
with my old books.

    A very touching and poignant poem. As long as we have warm memories of whose whom we loved so dearly, time stands still.

    Kindest regards,

    This made the tears well up, I could hardly contain, I know about this feeling and It Hurts
    You have such a graceful way
    Love to you and your closest
    Love Duncan X
