A Reading for Shaun Miller 2012
An angel you are, were and forever will be
sent to earth to ignite the flame within us all
to remember why we came.
Just as God sent his only beloved son to save the world.
He has come, he is gone and he will come again.
To all who knew Shaun for however long – or short
he spread his message of peace and love
to be loved, and to know love
to the fullest unconditionally,
just as he loved.
As young as Shaun was, to us who know him
he was ageless – a leader, a friend, a dear loved one
who will continue to spread his message of peace and love
in all that he did during his short stay
with everyone who passed his way
messages he leaves for us all
from here to Heaven, forever more.
With Love and all that Love means.
Much love from us all who truly love you Shaun.
