Six years on

Malathi Jeyaseelan

Six years on
Yet so vivid in our minds
Is your smile, the sparkle
And twinkle in your eye.
You took time to listen
To encourage and guide,
Your faith was the cornerstone,
A true friend who inspired.

A hug to show you care
Many a roti you did share;
Tears filled your eyes,
Whether you laughed or cried.
You were a beacon to many,
And did your brothers proud
As you lived the teachings
Of Christ personified.

Your three best boys –
Christie, Andre and Joel –
Were nurtured and loved
As dear hubby and sons.
We know you live on
In their hearts and minds.
They are richer by experiencing
The wonderful woman that you were.

The little ones at Framjee
Just loved you, they did;
You taught with such passion
And often went beyond your call.
As a Sylvanna to girl guides
And warden of the hostel
Each child received
Love beyond measure.

Malathi, thanks for the memories
That fill our days;
You were a wonderful friend,
Still dearly loved by us all.
We thank God for a life
Of giving and caring,
And try to remember
As we strive to do the same.

Your Colleagues at Methodist College Primary
