Florida's Foreverly Shores
A Magic Dragon And A Little Girl
~Marge Tindal~ 1999
A magic dragon and a little girl,
what a lovely pair they make.
They glide in sweet contentment now
on God's majestic lake.
The dragon puffs and snorts
and the little girl laughs with glee.
They run, they jump, they frolic now,
in a land called Honalee.
I sit on the shore and watch,
a smile where tears have been.
I long to join their laughter,
carried to me on the wind.
The dragon carries Shelly.
She smiles as they turn to go.
Of all the things she left me,
her memories remain 'just so'.
Glide on in merriment, little one.
Play on the lake of God's sky ...
I will wait here on the shore
but, I'll see you by and by.
She returns to me on memories.
It's as though she surely knew,
that learning to live without her
would be the very hardest thing ...
I'd ever have to do.
*A tiny little piece of my heart,
Michelle Lynette Barr.
Here too short, gone too long.
Oh, how I remember the joy.
