For Craig

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever
Ae fareweel, alas, for ever
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee

Fare thee weel, thou first and fairest
Fare thee weel, thou best and dearest
Thine be ilka joy and treasure
Peace, enjoyment, love and pleasure
Robert Burns

In memory of my husband, Craig Orr, 4 September 1937-19 November 2008
