Mamma's gone, passed in her sleep.
Dadda's gone, operation incomplete.
What they have left is what lives in me,
my children, my siblings, their friends and community.
Yes, your Mum and Dad will be there,
Your brother Jack and family too.
Your best friends gathered
All to greet you.
Perhaps amongst the glow of reuniting
You'll turn around to face us
Saying, "Send my love to everyone,
I'll be waiting for you here, my loves."
