    Karen Anne McKenna Batchelor

    There is No Light Without a Dawning
    No winter without a spring
    And beyond the dark horizon
    Our hearts will once more sing ….
    For those who leave us for a while
    Have only gone away
    Out of a restless, care worn world
    Into a brighter day
