Rip Bridget u are truly one and 1 million and I’m so glad that I meet u
When my sailing days are over
And I sail the seas no more
I shall build myself a refuge
By the ocean’s murmuring shore
As I watch the foaming breakers
When the tide comes, Rushing in
I will contemplate my lifetime
With it virtues and it’s sins.
Where azure of the heavens
Meets the undulating blue
Where the sweeping,soaring seagull
Flies its endless quest for food.
It is there where I would rest
When my work on earth is done
At the endless blue horizon
‘Neath the crimson, setting sun
You will always be loved and remembered. R. I. P Bridget.
RIP Bridget, Your memory will forever live on in your loved ones hearts.
You will REST IN PEACE forever.
I will always love you my own sweet Lass.
