NaBloPoMo: Sharing

Whilst editing a guest post for Caleb Wilde’s Confessions of a Funeral Director blog today, I began to think about the way in which I make sure that Chris’ memory remains alive, by sharing her story with others. Because her story and the pictures represent everything I have to remember her by, they have of course taken on a sacred element. So, without further ado, here’s another poem.


Although I don’t know everything about you
What I know is enough
It made losing you harder
Because there’s so much to love.

It wasn’t about your mark on the world
More your mark on my life.
You showed me a whole new path to tread
One that felt just right.

I want to share your story
I want the world to know
I want to keep your memory close
So I don’t have to let you go.


Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
