Seeking for a photograph
To distract and hide the truth
Rather than face my loss
Admit that grief is drowning me
Now I see the truth of it
God’s gift of distraction
Each moment a hiding away
Loving her by hunting her chase
Yes, your last joke was a success

Where on earth did it go?
Our voices rang with disbelief
Never realising your last trick was played
Deep beneath the clay you both reside
Eternally the photo at your side
Rushing around to replace precious memories
For the former owner and schoolmate
Ultimate prankster, you keep us going
Love you mammy
