Treasure Island

Dave Alan Walker

(Pudsey, Leeds)

For Betty Stawman (An Angel In Heaven)


When I was a lonely child
a child of ten
I'd dig your garden
for pennies and sweets

You treated me
with love and respect
you made me feel complete

When someone was in trouble
and everyone turned away
you'd take them in
and show them the way

You was a shining ray of light
you was an angel without wings
the souls you have saved
the lives you have changed

The memories that you gave to me
are all there to keep
I'll hold them close to me
as I drift off to sleep




R.I.P Betty Stawman,
The most wonderful person I have ever had the honour to have known.
