McCulloch's Story


"and I should not of sat here

everything would have been different.

For it would have been another world."

Edward Thomas

Lying below a foreign white stone

My granny's first love -

You waited 31 years to find her

Then one month after coming together

You were blown apart.

Exactly 65 years on

My first son was born

I wish I could wish you'd survived

But then he wouldn't be alive.
