Lynn Marie O' Donoghue, the 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”
