He built a bridge
For us to cross
A hand to hold
In our time of loss

Footsteps to follow
To a circle of friends
Who’ll surround you with love
Till your heartache ends

Non conforming
Un assuming
Yet inside
Love is blooming

Of volunteers
Mend our hearts
Calm our fears

A smile
A hug
The touch of a hand
A chain of love
To the Promised Land

Love is life
Life is giving
Hospice celebrates
The living
