In MemoriamMargaret Fahy (1965 – 2012)

Today is a day for quietness

Stillness in my heart

Looking at a precious photograph

Like soldiers ever marching

While solemn music plays

Passing by a silent Cenotaph


Remembering lost comrades

Buried far away

Lying quiet in a foreign field

I remember Margaret

Comrade of my days

The lovely lass who taught my heart to yield


She believed life is for living

Every single day

She knew the battle from the very start

In childhood days and adult years

Her patience and her quiet tears

She faced the day

She always played her part


And so I stand in silence

Remembering the girl

Who walked with me along that Tayside strand

I do believe in heaven’s door

We’ll walk again another shore

Margaret and I and hand in hand
