So far away

Photograph of my sister, Gwen, Alex Mum, and Gomez their beloved Golden Retriever by author.

You may not be with us now
On your birthday it’s today
However, you are in our thoughts
And Unca Dave in Jervis Bay.

Thirty-three’s a catchy age
Less than half of sixty-nine
You’re young and in the prime of life
And I’m older and am fine.
