White, Lisa

Lisa White of Calgary passed away on Saturday, December 3, 2005 at the age of 91 years.

The journey of this life has ended

Another one begins with the light of love

This tapestry has been woven and completed

The colours are infinite as is my love for you

Through the threads of time and space

I begin again with a new pattern

Each one is unique and special

My needle is the staff of life

The string I use is woven from the voice of God

Its lilting sounds create a joy and happiness

Within my soul and resonate the tranquility of sleep

Yet I awaken with a renewed truth

That all I have done and all I have been is not lost

For it is in your hearts and minds that I now dwell

Cry not for my passing for it is simply another doorway

Taking me closer to the source of all that we are and will be

I am immortal for I am the spirit of love and understanding

Time is fleeting and boundless

I dance with the stars and sing with the planets

I watch the tails of the comets as they pass by

I am as the river flows into the ocean, vast and life affirming

I know all and see all

Winter is over for me, spring has begun again

I will see you again when the shoots of the fresh lilies of the valley

Reach out their slender arms towards the heavens and ring the new day to all

When the trees waked from their slumber

To stretch out their limbs in a loving embrace of the sun

I whisper my love for all of you in the breeze of the spring afternoon

I cry tears of happiness and joy for you at the morning dew of the day

I am everywhere within and nowhere without

Remember me not as I was, but as I am

A daughter, wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother,

A woman, a teacher, a friend, a human vessel of love and light

I am Lisa and I am always with you

Composed by my loving grandson, Ken Paget
