    Poem by John Atkinson

    In honour of his late mother Janet Atkinson

    dearest mom

    everybody’s

    waiting for you,

    all your old friends,

    and some brand new

    our hearts broken,

    sadness and pain,

    is equaled by

    their glorious gain

    dad waiting

    with arms opened wide,

    your horse waiting,

    for you to ride

    a bountiful table

    filled with food,

    happy music

    to brighten the mood

    may your journey take you

    far beyond the moon,

    and with good grace,

    we’ll meet again soon
