We are here to mark the end of your days on earth. Ashes to dust.
We know you loved us, as we loved you. We know you cared for us.
As we live and learn, we hope to understand how it's possible to visit this earth, to live among people, as we need to be private, and quiet with ourselves.
We remember how you loved to laugh. We were young, and your laughter made us feel good.
Today, as we say goodbye, I would like to remember you drifting in your boat, a soft breeze, a warm day, having a laugh and a cry, remembering how it was, in our hearts, in our eyes.
