Got The T-Shirt: The Sunflower Wreath

Steph Spiers wrote this wonderful poem when one of her friends died all too young.

They’d put sunflowers on her coffin, as they wheeled it into church,
I hadn’t expected sunflowers and my stomach gave a lurch.
I hadn’t expected anything so befitting I suppose,
not from those left behind to manage as they chose.
Nothing so suitably relevant, nothing so close to home,
as that circle of golden happy faces smiling in the gloom.
