WHO WILL WEEP FOR NATASSJA…

She lived next door to me for 19 years
Always playing with my children
Where Rik and Subhala were there was Natassja too

Her smile… her beautiful smile
She enjoyed having meals with us together
But always a nervous… haunted look on her face

Parents divorced when she was 3
She had to deal with the suicide of her father at 10
Her mother was an alcoholic

A terrible car accident 3 years ago
Her mother badly injured
Now Natassja had to be the mother

She became so skinny…
I made her vanilla pudding with fresh strawberries
And extra cream… I was so worried about her

And no family around
Only Natassja and her mother
And always the wrong boyfriends

She moved to another village
And we lost contact for a while
Until I moved to the same village

She saw me walking my dog
And suddenly I heard her voice
Greeting me from the other side of the street

She was 6 months pregnant
from the wrong boyfriend
Later I heard… she lost her baby…

Then last week… a phone call from my daughter
Mom… did you hear about the woman
That died after a fall from her apartment?

Mommy…. That was Natassja…

No one knows… if she jumped from the building herself
Or that her 43 year old friend pushed her
during the fight they had…

So now I am asking…
Who will weep for Natassja
The girl… with the beautiful smile

Only 24 years young

Please my friends…
Weep with me for Natassja
So she will never feel alone again

Indeed - This young lady endured much in her few mortal years.  Neeraja, this is the "Announcements" forum - and not really intended for poetry.  We can move this lovely tribute to a poetry forum for you -  Which forum would you prefer?

OK - Since you intended this as a request for prayer, we'll leave it here for that purpose.  Bring on the prayers, poets...

Its poetic format is really appropriate for Open however, so I'll move a copy there.

What a sad sad life this girl had..
and to die at such a young age...
Prayers are being said that Natassja has found peace.
Heart hugs to you Neeraja.

Yes, hopefully your friend has found
the peace she so rightfully deserves.
What a tragedy that a life such as hers
fell through the cracks.  I am so grateful
that even if for a short time, she knew
your love, Neeraja.

Neeraja~
Such a sad and poignantly compelling read.
How could one not weep for the harshness of the life of Natassja ?

This is so very, very touching~
I lift her name in prayer~

(tears fall down my cheeks) Oh Neeraja, I am so very sorry to hear this tragic news, dearest friend, I wish I knew what to say to comfort and console you, but all I can say is that everyone who denied her should feel ashamed and now Natassja can rest in peace and finally feel free...as she has deserved to her entire life! (wipes tears) God Bless You, sweet friend, know we are always here for you and we are all so proud of Natassja and we for one loved her very much just as we love you, I want the whole heavens to hear as I scream aloud how special Natassja will always be! (sends angel healing hugs your way)



Love,

Thanks again...
