Rob's Elegy - Poem by Jacqui Thewless

If I have light
Yours was the first twinkle to kindle it;
If I have joy
Yours was the first laugh meant for me;
If I can bless
And if my heart knows simple modesty
I still remember thee, my dear,
I still love thee.

In Winters past
Your coming softened cruel December’s freeze;
In Summer’s fires
Your tales were like the cool burn’s melodies;
In Autumn’s lonesome air
And Spring’s abandoned gardens
Your presence there, good shepherd, made a place for me.

If I have light
Yours was the first twinkle to kindle it;
If I have joy
Yours was the first laugh meant for me;
If I can bless
And if my heart knows simple modesty
I still remember thee, my dear,
I still love thee.
