Birthday Girl

Her birthday falls tomorrow

She would be fifty-eight

But forty-seven was all she saw

And then to heaven’s gate


She was a saintly person

I knew it from the start

A good and lovely person

A kind and loving heart


She was the healing of my life

The answer to my cares

She brought her common sense to me

Fulfilment of my prayers

+ Margaret, my wife was born in Dublin 29 January 1965 and she died in Stirling 19 September 2012. In the gospel of Mass this weekend Jesus teaches us the Beatitudes. Many people walk this earth as living embodiments of those blessings. I count Margaret among them. I thank God that I met her.
