Away From A World


For Barry Cook (1962 – 2013)
A friend and work colleague for nearly twenty years.


The angels took you from us
into heaven to reside
away from a world
of pain and suffering
to languish in serenities peace,
but your memory lives on
in all those who cared dear
and will remain there
so long as life endears
when it is gone we’ll join you
in that eternal peace
reunited forever,
but for now dear friend
rest in peace
away from a world
of pain and suffering.
