Gone now, passed away

A life given to faith

Memories flit, special days

A face, a family, a taste

Touched your lives and ways

Fought through woods and waste

And love and hope were blazed.

Time flits and leaves in haste

Has gone to somewhere hazed

With memories softly placed

And though our minds are ‘mazed

The truth our lives it traced

Faith to show the way

Faith to face our days.
