CARUANA – FRANCESCO. In loving memory of a dearest and much-loved husband, father and grandfather on the second anniversary of his passing away.
Daddy,
The almond tree has blossomed
Your flowers too
Your garden is waiting,
Waiting for you.
The colours are shining
Looking like you
Loving and caring
Honest and true.
The skies are different
The stars look blue
Nature is singing
I know it’s you.
