Carl Erik Ivarsson

Our oldest son Carl Erik,

in the family named Erik,
but among his friends Calle.

He is not among us any longer.

Now you are alone with God
we cannot reach your hand
now you walk on new paths
to an unknown land

He loved to walk along the seashore in the grass where the rabbits had dug there holes ...

A photo from the last time he visited us, taken at our cabin in Borr 1995. You can probably see that he is not quite healthy then

Erik at Borr last summer
We thought of you with love today,
but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.

We think of you in silence;
we often speak your name;
All we have now are memories,
and your picture in a frame.
