More Irish-ness

This little prayer is called

A wish for a Friend

Wishing you a rainbow
for sunlight after showers-
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours-
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life though!

And this one is called:

Remember Joy-

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw his face, I heard His call,
I took His hand and left it all......
I could not stay another day,
To love , to laugh, to work or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss...
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My life's been full, I've savoured much:
Good times, good friends, a loved-one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief-
Don't shorten yours with undue grief.
Be not burdened with tears or sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow.

(For Mercydez a little heart friend who passed her test of this life)
