  • He’s in a Better Place

    He rests in peace with a beautiful smile, He can no longer hide, The station he has reached, inside, There’s no doubt he’s in a better place No longer able to grace Us with his loving gaze, The angels will now have the honour Of taking his soul, Lighter than the flutter of a bird’s […]
