Staying strong


Saturday 27th August

Staying strong is what I do

Staying strong is what you see

With so many wonderful memories

My precious Angel is now flying free.


Never falling apart is what I do

Never falling apart is what you see

Even though my heart is broken

I know in heaven you’re pain-free.


Love you forever sweetheart

Even though we’re far apart.

Missing you like crazy

Precious Angel baby.


Busy harbour this afternoon
