Damian Cranney (27/09/1949 / Liverpool)
I walked amidst the shadows, that curtained life,
I looked for the sun to relieve my pain,
if you had been with me it would have released the hurt,
But you were absent when my need was great.
It does not matter, now, I know that now,
I am comforted by your presence, beside me,
l live each day for each day,
And you, my love.
The time is near when my absence may hurt you,
But dwell not on that, but on what we have been,
And if in future times you need a love,
I will smile on your need and bless you.
