    Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us every day,
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear.

    Rest in Peace, my sweet friend. I’ll remember you always.

  3. For my beautiful cousin Rhonda, who is the sum of a whole life and not just her mistakes. She loved her daughters, she loved her father and her mother, she loved her brother and his family…she loved us all. And we loved her – there was so much more to her than is being said …. We had fun halloweens, and fun reunions … we played games as children … we teased each other … she tried to get her ears pierced when she found out all three of her cousins had theirs pierced and she wound up passing out…. we all laughed about that. She loved the song “Funky Town” too much… She caught fireflies and would rub them on her white shirt so it would glow… She laughed really, really loud. I love her and I miss her…and I expect I always will. This poem I love is perfect for Rhonda:
    song of living
    Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
    I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky.
    I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken the wind to my breast.
    My cheeks like a drowsy child to the face of the earth I have pressed.
    Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
    I have kissed young love on the lips, I have heard his song to the end,
    I have struck my hand like a seal in the loyal hand of a friend.
    I have known the peace of heaven, the comfort of work done well.
    I have longed for death in the darkness and risen alive out of hell.
    Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
    I gave a share of my soul to the world, when and where my course is run.
    I know that another shall finish the task I surely must leave undone.
    I know that no flower, nor flint was in vain on the path I trod.
    As one looks on a face through a window, through life I have looked on God,
    Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
    Amelia Burr, American poet (1878 – 1968)
