I Love You Mum

Jean May Smith
25/9/37 - 22/2/12

Jean, Jean, Roses are red.

All the leaves have gone green.

And the clouds are so low,

You can touch them and so,

Come out to the meadow, Jean.

Jean, Jean, You're young and alive.

Come out of your half dreamed dream.

And run, if you will, to the top of the hill.

Open your arms, bonnie Jean.

Till the sheep in the valley come home my way.

Till the stars fall around me and find me alone.

When the sun comes a' singin, I'll still be waiting for...

Jean, Jean, Roses are red.

And all of the leaves have gone green.

While the hills are ablaze

With the moon's yellow haze,

Come into my arms, bonnie Jean.

Dear Trace,
I'm so sorry to hear your news. Take care, I'm thinking of you and sending hugs and deepest sympathy. Go down to Green's Pool, stand in the water there in that beautiful sacred place, and let the sea take your grief... she can handle it all.

My deepest condolences to you. My dad died in September and i'm still finding my way through it - I find that little snippets of comfort come in the most unexpected ways. Thank you for sharing your beautiful mother with us.
