Shine On

The sun breaks the sky
on a new week it beams

But then rain does fall
like tears as heaven calls

For a light goes out on earth
in the heavens it now shines

Looking down on those he loved
never forgetting all left behind

As we all share a memory
of a man great and good

This beacon of a spirit
who made us smile like we should

So no tears for this man
for he looks upon us all

He had to answer
heaven’s eternal call

Shine on, shine on, shine on…

RIP Great-Uncle Ken. You shall be missed.
