Lynn Marie O' Donoghue, a woman who was the light of my life for so many years, left this world this morning. Words can't express...
Lynn used to have this poem by Ann Gray in a frame on our bedroom mantelpiece. She kept it with her and I found it in her possessions at the end:
“Let’s love, listen, take time when time is all we have.
Let’s be unafraid to be kind, learn to disregard the bad if the good outweighs it daily.
Let’s make a gift of silence, the day’s hushing into dark, and when we hold each other let’s always be astonished we are where we want to be”
I don’t know when Lynn did it, but she had highlighted the final paragraph, which says;
“Let’s hope to age together, but if we can’t, let’s promise now to remember how we shone when we were at our best, when we were most ourselves”
