Let Our Memories Be The Bridge

LET OUR MEMORIES BE THE BRIDGE (Written for my dear friend Mike Guest NZ) (an Eulogy from afar) For those of you that gather this day With individual memories to savour Use them all to build a busy highway A bridge to cross with words of favour. While across the miles with love that remains strong Knowing your book of life now can be signed We’ll remember the words of the song You’ll always be on my mind. © Harry J Horsman 2018

A tender hearted eulogy, Harry- filled with deep affection, and the deep respect entwined with it...strong and honest bonds defy distance- "Use them all to build a busy highway A bridge to cross with words of favour." Last stanza says it all! Warm regards,~~Aqua M~~

I like your notion of a book that can now be signed. Bridges and busy highways and overpasses and subways ...
