Rose’s has two favourite poems that she wanted to share with her family and friends when she passed.
Miss Me, But Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me,
I want no tears in the gloom-filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little – but not for long and not with your head.
I’m There Inside Your Heart
Right now, I’m in a different place, And though we seem apart,
I’m closer than I ever was, I’m there inside your heart.
I’m with you when you greet each day, and while the sun shines bright,
I’m there to share the sunsets too, I’m with you every night.
I’m with you when the times are good, to share a laugh or two,
And if a tear should start to fall, I’ll still be there for you.
And when the day arrives, that we no longer are apart,
I’ll smile and hold you close to me, forever in my heart.
