There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance. Pray you, love, remember. William Shakespeare, Hamlet
A time to remember
By Roger Childs
Back in mid October there was a poignant service at the Mary Potter Hospice in Kapiti.
Loved ones of those who were helped by the Hospice over the previous five months, before they passed on, were remembered.
These remembrance ceremonies are always moving occasions and there are many appropriate reading and songs.
One of the readings from this recent service features below.
The Tide Recedes
The tide recedes, but leaves behind
Bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle warmth
Still lingers on the land.
The music stops, and yet it lingers
On in sweet refrain.
For every joy that passes
Something beautiful remains.
