Every Book Has Its Last Page
Dedicated to the memory of the late writer, artist and musician Ingrid Andrew…
Every book has its last page
When turned, signifies the end
Such is life, and its many chapters
We turn the last page on our friend
But life, unlike a look, its length we know not
When finished ask in surprise, is that it?
Be sure to read each chapter and page, each line
Miss not the tears, the tales, worry and wit.
