A Poem For Kirsty
Died 20 February 2002, aged 25 years

Although I never met you we were links in a chain
I know about the joy you gave I understand your pain
For we can't always see ourselves the way that others do
You didn't plan to leave us yet, self doubt just blurred your view.
And Kirsty I know how you tried to come to terms with 'You'
I know you longed to change your path, take footsteps fresh and new
But being so young and full of life and thinking you'd be fine
You'd simply put it all on hold and take those steps some time.
And Kirsty you know you were loved by mum and dad and Graham
You didn't mean to make them sad to cause them all this pain
You know that they will not forget your fun and happy smile
Be sure that you are in their hearts, be peaceful now awhile.
With Love from Kathy
