Memories are all I have now.

But they are nowhere near enough!

Memories of lazy day visits, to your home

And the warmth of camomile cups,

That gently touched as they rested

Upon the honeyed oak.

Or sitting in the garden, your own private Eden

Complete with industrious bees and

Peaceful dovecote.


And if I could,

I would robe these moments,

In pure amber

And weave them into the

Fabric of Time.

So that the universe would always


That you were a

Dear friend of mine.

Dear George, you were a jewel in my life. You gave so much of yourself to all the things you believed in and your loving kindness will live on in my heart. George Saunders: Chair of Norwich Access Group and lover of the natural world.
