The golden thread in the family tapestry

Dulcie Bianca Jayewardena

When the golden thread
That weaves the grand design
Is wrenched away
The beauty of the tapestry
Will never be the same –
Like your demise had been.

Deeper still is our grief,
Remembering the astute way
With love and foresight
You made ours a happy home,
Guiding our two daughters
And shrewd but impish son
To fine-tune their skills
And achieve their goals.

Now when the fruits are ripe
Your absence is the saddest blow,
But the memory of fifty years
Of happy family life we share
Is treasured by all you loved.

R. D. K. Jayewardena
