Goodbye Tom

I didn’t sing at your funeral,

And I know how you loved to sing.

Did you choose those hymns?

They rang with your thoughts,

Reflected your hopes, your life.

And I sat in your chapel,

Surrounded by strangers and friends,

Who also came to say goodbye,  

Wanting to grieve without tears.

 

Goodbye Tom.

 

You never feared emotion,

And lived to love life.

You wouldn’tImage be embarrassed

By its ending.
