This is another of the poems/quotes I found in my mum’s notebook.
It is one that I, completely serendipituously, had stumbled across, just a couple of weeks before my mum died, and I squirelled it away in my very own notebook.
When I opened mum’s book and saw it there, I knew straight away what it was I wanted to read at her memorial service.
It is quite a famous quote, originally from a lady called Marianne Williamson, and it was then used in Nelson Mandela’s inaugural speech. This is a ‘secularised’ version.
