YOU GAVE ME LIFE
You created a spirit of hope for me to live within;
You nourished and strengthened me as I learned who I was in life.
You were there for my first cry, my first step, my first word,
You made possible each opportunity and success that was to be mine.
AN INQUISITIVE CHILD
You did your best to answer my constant questions without growing weary,
Accompanied me on my many escapades without discouraging me,
And stood by me in my endless pursuits in life,
Never tiring of my unquenchable quest for knowledge, experience, and activity.
THANK YOU FOR
The understanding you gave as I lived my life as what you termed a ‘trend setter',
For giving me the freedom to dress myself although I often looked different than others,
And for teaching me the life lessons that allow me to stand strong against any adversity.
You were a person of faith, strength, honor, valor, and wisdom.
YOU WERE WITH ME BUT A MOMENT
A short whisper of time; 93 years seeming like a breath, a blink, a sigh,
So many more things left to say, so many more things left to share – to see – to do……
Time is gone……
And I miss you more than you know.
