    She must have been
    beautiful to
    do what she did

    I never knew her, but in
    dreams, I watched her
    fall in love with a man
    six years older then she

    New York Must have been
    beautiful in October with Autumn
    leaves, and orange lights aglow
    on doorsteps of all

    I know she stood 5'8
    with longer hair, and green
    eyes, he was taller
    with blue eyes and darker
    brown hair

    By the time he met her
    he'd been divorced
    twice, he married
    again in 1956,
    he married her

    Their union was short
    but together had 6 children
    2 girls, and 4 boys

    She was a music lover
    full of passion, played the harp,
    I was told her voice was
    like the angels when she sang
    a heavenly host
    my spine chills to think
    of such beauty

    He was the rustic type
    the outdoor man, who worked
    on cars, and had a sadness about him
    that walked his heart

    She died a young death
    a disease that plagued
    her soul, took the very
    breath of beauty she bestowed

    I don't recall what happened
    to him or the 4 of his children,
    I feel were not as lucky

    She must have been beautiful
    for what she did, giving
    me life through her unselfish act

    I am Thankful


    Every Year you are missed

I am still...
beautifully written

If I should fall again, then they will laugh but what if just this one I rise?

Such a desolate story... beautiful work.
