Life in the Slow Lane: IT DOESN'T END HERE

Tuesday 16 October 2012


Two days after posting THIS, we had word from DEB that her mum, Marti, had lost her battle with cancer. We realised that Marti's earthly part of the story was coming to an end, but my Faith tells me that her story continues...and I know that Deb's Faith allows for that also.

I was given this poem by a friend, after Stuart's has been a great source of comfort for me...I hope it will  be for Deb and for all of Marti's family.

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 rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free!

Miss me a little, but not for long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we once shared,
Miss me, but let me go!

For this a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone;
It's all a part of the master's plan
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me, but let me go.
