A Passing Poem

A Passing Poem By Sue Ellson Property on Wattle Valley Road Canterbury Melbourne Victoria Australia

A Passing Poem

By Sue Ellson


Time brings endings
And new beginnings
Memories are reminders
Of all the trimmings


Friends and family
Will always linger
Love, faith and hope
Will help us cope


As we pause to reflect
Our hearts will collect
The feelings
The seeings
The doings
The beings


And the sun will shine
And the rain will fall
But in the end
We can conquer it all


A person I know has recently nursed her husband through a very aggressive form of cancer and today, I found out that he has passed away. He was an incredibly insightful and caring man and she has documented their journey via semi-regular posts on Facebook. It has been wonderful to witness her courage, candour and care. I chose to write this poem as a way to say my own goodbye. With love, Sue Ellson 🙂
