They’ll always be in your heart

Special thanks to Ellie-Mae for her fantastic entry. A passionate writer and poet, Ellie-Mae would like to pursue a career as an author when she leaves school. We are sure you will enjoy Memories and remember loved ones when you read. Thank you Ellie-Mae for sharing your excellent talent.


We all have people who we love,

We all have people to see,

But sometimes they need to go,

Into a better life, another one and another one.

But do not worry,

Do not forget,

Yet they are happy


Wherever you go in this world,

They’ll always be there,

Forever and ever.

Even if you went to space

They’ll always be with you,

In your heart,

In your mind

In your family.

They’ll always be in your heart,

Wherever you go.

Ellie-Mae Slavin-Lockyer, age 8
