Going - Going - Never Really Gone
~*Marge Tindal*~


God was bidding on angels
when her name came up that day.
He said I'd like to have her
come with me to stay.

The finest qualities she possesses,
the best of the lot, I see.
I will bid until I win.
Shari will live with me.

She has a mother's heart
that will be surely missed.
The loving grandmotherly traits,
on her grandchild's cheek, a kiss.

She is the sister
to brothers and sisters alike.
I need her for an angel.
I need her to take flight.

Go and bring her to me.
Let angels wipe her loved one's tears.
Let them know she will return on memories
for the rest of their years.

I will dispatch her on the morning sun
to lighten their hearts of woe.
I'll send her again to lift them
when they are feeling low.

She will not really be gone,
for in their hearts she will live.
This is the Angel Shari,
she will return to give.

Going once,
going twice,
but never really gone.


*With loving thoughts
of my sister, Shari.  
Today is her birthday.
I miss her.
Happy Birthday, little sister.

Marge this is beautiful, yet sad in it's own way too, but to remember her as an angel is a special thing to do. I can tell she's always there beside you.

Nurse C~
Thank you for your comforting words.
The feelings are still so raw as she
died just this past October.
I have to find comfort in the memories
she took the time to leave.
The ~Angel Shari~ lives in my heart.

Beautifully written and what a wonderful sister you are to remember her this way.
Those we truly love never really leave us.
They live on in the wonderful memories we have of them and the many ways they touched our lives.
Such a great poem for your sister.

Marge...those that live in our hearts are never gone. What a beautiful tribute to your sister and if she were anything like you, I'm sure she lives on in the hearts of all who knew her.

I have looked forward to reading another one of your poems and although I thought I knew what to expect I was once again wrong...you far exceeded my hope of a touching poem, I will never again make the mistake of putting boundries on your talent as I see you have not done either.  Thank you for reaching for the heavens....you are an amazing writer.

Martie~
Thanks, love.  
God I hope so !
I needed that hug.

ButterfliesDC~
I thank you for your
comments on what I write.
Don't know any other way to do it,
but straight from the heart.
I'm glad to know it was perceived
that way.

David~
The heart of this lady needed
that kind of understanding today.
I think the 'gift' is in having blessed
with people who touched my life.
It's been a day mixed with emotions.

I hope that Shari's birthday was filled with the wonderful memories you have of her, Marge.

I hope someday you get the chance to live like you were dying....
