Michael Edwards









A life that spanned good duties path

with love long held and not transferred

and now within our own domain

where hearths with vestal fires burn

protected there by lock and key

and all that flows in our retreat

the gentle tears of love long held.

              Oh that sweet and secure love that only maturity can bring us. A safe and divine place. Lovely words Michael.
