Our dearest Nicolena...
It's been hard Nicolena to write this rhyme,
Still grieving for you at this point in time.
But there are things I would like to say
Remembering you in my own special way.
Firstly Nini, you were one of a kind,
Always a lady, of intelligent mind.
Lots of childhood memories are still vivid and clear,
Memories I'll treasure and now hold very dear,
We shared the same room, learnt piano, did dance.
Played tennis, went swimming, discussed romance.
Had fights of course as most people do,
But of course, I never stopped loving you.
And through growing up and the passing of years,
New challenges, excitement, laughter and tears.
You've been a wonderful sister and devoted mother it's true,
And your boys are such a credit to you.
But lately you suffered and endured so much pain,
I hated seeing you go through that again and again.
So with so much sadness in my heart I say to you,
Rest in peace my dearest Nini, I will always love and remember you.
Your loving sister,
