I remember


Uralla Cemetery, Sunday, 21 September 2008 6:37 AM

If you go to the cemetery in a little town called Uralla you might see a headstone under a cluster of gum trees engraved with a poem.


BILLY-JEAN

She left us ere we knew her
Yet we loved her from the start.
She’s now with God in heaven
And she’s with us in our hearts. 
We will not see her growing
Nor kiss her pretty face,
But we’ll always have her memory
And in our hearts a place.
We’ll see her soon in glory,
United we will be.
That hope will ever keep us
Until with her we’ll be.


DH chose this spot to bury our little girl, Billy-Jean, born too early to live.
There are no what-ifs, no could-have-beens. That would be nonsense!
But today, 20 years on, I remember.

That's all.

I was NOT expecting to blubber over this post. :(
