|A world without Mary|
She loved Seattle rain and it was sweeter for her presence
The coffee shops were splendid in her eyes
Mary loved people and never was too busy for a little talk
Hedges of Rosemary sight and smell small delights on walks
The sounds and sights of Puget Sound were sweet to her senses.
Her boundless love was there for us to treasure
Generous and kind with no end of measure.
She loved her Love without reserve
and to many of us she gave more than we deserved.
We loved her in return how could we not?
But we find it hard to smile as much
In a world without Mary.
