My Special Friend

The coldness of death seeps through my veins,

It seems so definite, so final,

Yet there is hope.

Our thoughts turn to memories of happiness,

We mourn, but mourn in Joy,

For you have died, but still live.

Even though the tears still roll from my eyes,

My heart knows that my friend will live forever,

For my friend is Loved by many.


This was written by me, 27 years ago as a part of my English studies. It simply felt like the right time to bring it into the light.

My special friend was Margaret MacAllister who died of cancer 12th July 1989.


About R Congues

Funny enough, this blog has become the expression of my hopes, dreams, love and experiences. It came about because of the situation I discovered I was in, and I am delighted to see it grow and heal into something different: I am a parent of two children, one who has experienced severe anxiety that became disabling in all aspects of their life. I am a teacher of Maths, Science and Religious Education with a Masters in Special Needs Education; I am a qualified Reiki master, with a love of art and creative experience. I am not a professional in the fields of psychology or medicine. (If you are interested in these perspectives there are many internet sites to use.) I am simply expressing my experience in my own unique way.
