By Turlough O'Carolan. Sequenced by Barry Taylor.
|We wish that [name] could be with us|
This very special day,
'Cause he [or she] was like a rush of sun
Before he went away.
We light this candle so that we
We wish that he could share with us
But even though he's not with us,
Note: If you don't want to have a candle-lighting ceremony, simply leave out the second verse. Also feel free to change the poem to the plural ("We wish our parents were with us," "We wish our loved ones were with us," etc.).
