The Last Goodbye

The ship awaits you
The sea is ready
To bear you away
To the sunset of dreams

Tearful goodbyes
To the ones that love you
Knowing too well
That you cannot stay

We touched so briefly
Yet we remember
As if imprinted
On our very souls

You were the one
The whole world stopped for
You were the one so humbly rare
You were the love of a lifetime journey
You were the one who made us care

Rest you now the incense burning
Rest you now within the urn
Holding hands forever feeling
The love you gave
To the willing world

But on we go
The world still turning
And eyes so burning
From our river of tears

Thank you for the light you shined here
Thank you for your courage bold
Bless you for the years of trying
When the gift was so hard to hold

Rest you now in soft green pastures
Sleep you now in God's enfold
Take your memories of earth's great lessons
To the stars-for the young and old.
An original poem by Don Orne

We are sorry we can't be there with all of you during this difficult time, but know are thoughts and prayers are with you. Uncle John lived a long, full life, and it was such a blessing getting to spend time with him last fall. Growing up my mom and I always enjoyed coming back to Adams House Cabins that Uncle John took such loving care of.
