6th Month Remembrance of Rukie Eheliyagoda (26.03.1926 - 19.03.2017)
God looked down on His creation
Saw a life that was a godly celebration
Held out His hand and invited her in
The crown of life for her to win.
She brought me happy days, day after day
Though I willed it, she could not stay
My need for her will never abate
But heaven’s need was not for debate.
Broken I whispered, “God knows best”
As she entered God’s eternal rest
Leaving behind a powerful legacy
Following her footsteps won’t be easy.
When the setting sun paints the canvass of the sky
With sweeping colours that enchant the eye
Lingering golden memories in cascading poignancy
Embrace me leaving me lonely.
At her feet the valuable lessons learnt
Keep me happy, wiser and unhurt
“No path in life is easy and straight”
Those words of wisdom reverberate.
Until someday on that golden shore
Together again forever more
In God’s eternal home on high
Never again a need to say goodbye.
Forever my love
