Alison Chapman McLean, photographer and my dear wife of 55 years passed away in January 11th, 2021, and I wrote this for her. Her ashes are scattered in the woods behind our house.

We woke up together and shared the dawn chorus
I still smell your hair as you snuggled up close.
Another new day and our life stretched before us
No thought for the future and blind to its woes.

Now sadly I wander alone in the woodland
Tracing our footsteps and thinking of you.
How slowly we’d strolled with my hand clasping your hand
No words passed between us, the silence was true.

We smiled at the flowers, when springtime was kinder,
Bluebells and daffodils, wild in their prime
The breeze on my cheek is a painful reminder,
How soft were your lips as they brushed against mine.

So Alison, sweetheart, you’re leaving me never.
When daffodils tell us that springtime is near
Though birdsong is silent, and sleep is forever,
You lie among flowers which come back each year.
You lie among flowers which come back each year.
